Archaeological Heritage of Rigvedic Saraswati

"The present book `Archaeolgical Heritage of Reigvedic Saraswati' is based on the fact that the Harappan Civilization represents the first urban civilization in South Asia. Recent investigations have shown that the number of sites of this civilization on the banks of Rigvedic Saraswati River and its tributaries is far greater than those on the Indus River.

The Saraswati River, along with its tributaries, such as the Drishadwati, etc., enjoyed great fame and prestige during the Vedic times. The Vedic Civilization our Heritage-may be therefore, considered as a gift of the Rigvedic Saraswati.

The objectives of the present book are to understand the following points:

1. Geographical extent of Vedic and Harappan Civilization; 2. Role of Saraswati in the growth and Prosperity of Vedic and Harappan Vedic and Harappan Civilization; 3. Relation between Vedic and Harappan Civilization (material culture study); 4. Casuses of dawn and devolution of Vedic/Harappan Civilizations; and 5. The evolution and continuity of Indian heritage from Rigvedic-Harappan times.

To meet the above objectives a detailed examination of all the facts available through various published sources in Archaeological, Literature, Geological, Geographical fields, etc., have been collected and discussed, by dividing the book into seven chapters."
