A Guide to Taxila
Sir John Marshall (1876-1958) was a British archaeologist who was the Director-General of the Archaeological Survey of India from 1902 to 1928. First published in 1960, as the fourth edition of a 1918 original, this book was written to provide a concise guide to the ruins of Taxila, excavation of which was led by Marshall. The introductory chapters give the topographical and historical background, and the main body of the work discusses the various groups of buildings and the material they were found to contain. Numerous illustrative figures, a glossary of technical terms and a bibliography are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Taxila and archaeology.
