Orient Blackswan, 2003 - Andhra Pradesh (India) - 185 pages
This volume traces archaeological research undertaken in Andhra Pradesh going back to the nineteenth century when the cultures of the region were explored and documented. In the 1950s, scholars conducted culture-historic research across the physiographical regions of Andhra Pradesh, following trends in India and Old World. 1970s saw a shift from the historic approach to the development of models for the contextual study of sites, and the explanation of the archaeological record in terms of the adaptive behaviour of past societies.
