The present volume on Anthropology of Ancient Hindu Kingdoms is based on an empirical field-work which continued for several years with gaps in between as well as the textual data collected through the library works carried out at Darbhanga, Patna, Calcutta, Ranchi, Nagpur, Raipur, Bilaspur etc. The study of the ancient Hindu Kingdoms reveals, firstly, that different Hindu Kingdoms were the seats of learning, and accelerated several cultural activities binding together the diverse faiths and traditions into one civilizational region.
