This is a concise history of Delhi from the Stone Age to the time of the Rajputs. The narrative weaves together evidence from stone tools, ancient mounts, pottery, monuments, sculpture, literature, and local traditions to construct a comprehensive and lively narrative. Highlighting the intersections between 'ancient', ' medieval' and 'modern' in the city's historical landscape, it presents the different ways in which the past is remembered and recreated. The second edition updates the research on Delhi's history and includes some new evidence. It also underlines the importance of new perspectives for understanding Delhi's past. With maps, black-and-white photographs, index and select bibliography.
