Based on archaeological field-work for six seasons (1999-2001, 2002-05), this book examines the problems of ancient political units, urban centres, and routes of the upper Ganga plain between Pratapgarh in the south and the foothills of Uttaranchal (Uttarakhand) in the north. This also examines how the links were maintained between this Himalayan belt and the plains, and what could be the general period by which the Himalayan pilgrim-spots the earlier one on the archaeological geography of the lower and the middle Ganga plain sum up the author`s observations on the historico-geographical survey of the Ganga plain which he conducted for fourteen field seasons beginning in 1991. In many ways these books demonstrate how it is possible to gain insights into the ancient historical reality of a region by going over the modern ground with a feel for the land, historical reality of a region by going over the modern ground with a feel for the land, historical understanding, and the scholarship to back it.
