O.P Mishra, Area surveys by Department of Archaeology, Museums and Archives, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh

Dr O. P. Mishra (Department of Archaeology, Museums and Archives, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh)

The following three books in Hindi were prepared and published by the Department:

Rāysen kā purātattva (Bhopal, 2007). 378 pp; illus.
Vidiśā jile kā purātattva (Bhopal, 2007). 362 pp; illus
Bhopāl jile kā purātattva (Bhopal, 2007). 227 pp; illus.

These volumes, published under the editorship of Dr. Mishra with encouragement from the project team, provide an account of the work conducted by the Department of Archaeology, Museums and Archives in the AHRC study area. Over a number of seasons in the 1990s, the Department deployed survey teams to prepare a comprehensive archaeological account of remains in Madhya Pradesh. Until publication, the data existed only as hand-written manuscript records in the Department’s archive. Copies of the volumes have been deposited in the British Museum library.
