Archaeomaterials in Early-Cultures of Middle Ganga Plain : Excavations at Khairadih (1996-97), District Ballia, U.P.

"The site of Khairadih having an imposing mound was excavated horizontally for several seasons by archaeologists of Banaras Hindu University. An extensive habitation with strong socio-cultural set-up with vibrant techno-economic activities was unearthed in excavations conduted for several seasons. The present report on the excavations gives a comprehensive account on life and culture during the proto-historic-early historic period. The unique contribution of these excavations is evidence of technological activities in form of full-fledged workshops - complete with kilns, furnaces and forges, etc. revealing information on ceramic technology, glass working, metallurgy and coinage.

This report emphasizes on scientific and analytical study of archaeomaterials belonging to early-historic period in the Middle Ganga Plain. Taking cognizance of technological achievements unearthed archaeologically, the present work attempts to evaluate the social response to technological developments. The social organization in the form of the `varna system' echoed in the social hierarchy perceptible in the specialized craft production. This process contributed in a big way to urbanization of Ganga Plain which evolved as `area of attraction' giving rise to emergence of the `Mahajanapadas' by the sixth century BCE. In light of Khairadih excavations, issues like pattern of adaptation of technology, growing technological innovations and their wider social-cultural and politico-economic ramifications have been closely evaluated in the larger context of socio-cultural life of the Ganga Plain here."
