Archaeology has become implicated in the Ayodhya controversy. It has been claimed that archaeological evidence provides irrefutable proof of the existence of a Rammer temple at the site of the Barb Massaged, and of the destruction of this temple by Babur.

The author uses standard archaeological procedures to question the calim. Exploring possible alternative interpretations of the available data, he concludes that there was no temple of stone or brick lying below the mosque, and that there is no evidence of any act of destruction. This a defense of archaeology against its political misuse.
