This imposing book Archaeology of Things has delved deep in the study of the prehistoric world, and the great ancient civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, China, and India. Dr. Murthy with his immaculate scholarship and scientific sensitivity has marshalled the study of the subjects like pottery, bronze, iron, glass, dwellings, musical instruments, sport devices, writing materials, medical lore and the like of the ancient period. The acumen of the book is highly enriched by the addition of an appendix--man, at the end. Needless to say, this book with its mine of information, generates enormous interest and inspires further research in the same lines.

This volume is the outcome of Prof. Krishna Murthy's three-and-a-half decades of dedicated industry and indefatigable research. This book is certain to become an authoritative, and major archaeological tome for all time to come.
