About the Book :
The progress of human civilization is closely linked up with the development of material culture, which enriches the life of the people. This book goes back to the period when iron came to be used first on a large scale for manufacturing implements, tools, weapons and other objects of daily use and is stretched up to 300 A.D., which is considered as the beginning of the golden age of the Indian history. The vast data available in various excavation reports has been arranged chronologically and analysed under different categories like architecture, household objects, dress and ornaments, games and amusements, tools, and weapons, food and drinks, conveyance and trade routes, with a view to trace their antiquity and development during this period. This material is amply corroborated by the contemporary literary and sculptural evidences.
