1 Review
This title is devoted to the researches, discoveries, and interpretations of those Indian and international scholars from different disciplines who have been working at the Vijayanagara site over the last 20 years. The volume complements the issue of Marg in the early 1980s, which provided an overview of Hampi-Vijayanagara. This book, however, focuses on specific topics and problems in an attempt to offer new insights into the understanding of this increasingly visited UNESCO World Heritage site.
