    of immense value for those interested in the reconstruction of ancient and

    mediaeval history and culture of Orissa, the major part of which is still

    in darkness. Based on the original documents in the form of copper plate

    and stone records, discovered from different parts of Orissa, it presents

    almost a complete picture of the history and culture of the period (C.A.D.

    5th-8th century A.D.) in Orissa as part of the wider scene that obtained in

    the Indian sub-continent.

    The volume deals with as many as sixty valuable epigraphic records that

    fall within the period set for the book which have been divided into five

    sections along with an extensive introductory analysis of the texts studied

    from various aspects. It presents a chronologically classified list of

    inscriptions which are of undoubted historical importance. In its

    originality of materials and the manner of presentation, the volume is sure

    to remain a source book for the research scholars in this field of their

    study.
