The Pyrotechnological developments have played a vital role in shaping the history of humankind.The present book attempts to trace the developments in the field of fire-related technologies in ancient India. It deals at length with stages of innovative measures taken to develop technologies of ceramics pottery, terracotta, glass as well as metals like copper and its alloys, gold, silver, zinc, tin and iron. In addition, to giving detailed treatment to archaeological material unearthed in excavations, the analytical studies of archaeomaterials, have also been incorporated. For a holistic reconstruction of technological developments that took place in the proto-historic and early historic cultures of the Ganga plain, the rich literary resources have been tapped wherever available. In nutshell, the book is a complete account of fire-based technologies which shaped the personality of cultures of the Ganga plain. The book, thus, should be of interest to serious scholars of archaeology as well as general readers who are keen on authentic history of technology in ancient India.
