Explorations in Banaskantha District

Explorations in Banaskantha District, Gujarat (2007-08)

Partial but systematic archaeological explorations were carried out along the River Banas and the Sipu in Deesa and Dantiwada talukas in order to study the settlement pattern and cultural dynamics of Proto-historic period with special reference to the Harappan affiliated Chalcolithic settlements. These explorations were highly rewarding as more than hundred sites ranging from the Mesolithic to the Late Medieval period were brought to light.
