Explorations in Dang District

Explorations in Dang District, Gujarat (2013-14)

During the course studies by the Branch it was noticed that the southern part of Gujarat, especially Dang has remained mostly unexplored by the archaeologists. To understand the archaeological remains of the district and considering the probability of finding early historic sites along the ancient trade routes, Village to Village Surveys were initiated in 2013-14. During the course of the survey several sites with microliths, Hero/ Sati stones, and remains of Brahmanical temples of Early Medieval origin were brought to light.
