From the archaeological point of view Vidarbha, which lies in the extreme eastern part of Maharashtra, is distinct and rich as there are enough evidences of proto-historic human settlements dating back to the chalcolithic period around the first millennium BCE. Keeping this in view the present volume has attempted to showcase an archaeo-historical profile of the region, ranging from the 6th century BCE to the 5th-6th century CE. The book endeavours to understand the early iron age early historic developments that took place in the region of Vidarbha. The aim of this book is to illuminate the historical archaeology of the region bys studying the available archaeological numismatic epigraphic and literary data. An earnest effort has been made to provide an updated profile in the light of recent excavations and related works conducted there after. The book proposes for the first time the relationship between Asmaka Mahajanapada and early iron age culture iron Vidarbha. (jacket) Printed Pages: 224 with 72 figures & maps.
