About the Book
The recent exploration and excavation work conducted by the A.S.I. has confirmed that Buddhism was popular in North-East India during the post Gupta and early medieval period while the establishment of Boxanagar seems to be earlier than those of the Mainamati and Paharpur (Bangladesh). Buddhism entered Assam through Brahmaputra valley, while Tawang was influenced from Tibet and Northern part of Arunachal Pradesh from China.

The present study on the Black Slipped Ware of Eastern Uttar Pradesh and Avadh region (Pre-NBPW deposit) shows that it is entirely different in texture, polished, shapes and types as discovered from other parts of Northern India. We can suggest that the Black Slipped Ware of this region can be treated as a separate culture which originated in Eastern UP around 1100 B.C.E and continued upto 400 B.C.E when it finally merged with N.B P.Ware.

Dr. Syed Jamal Hasan, born on 4th May 1956 in Zamindar family Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, obtained Post-Graduation in Ancient History, Culture Archeology from Tilak-Dhari Mahavidyalaya, Jaunpur (U.P) recently retired Director (Archeology) from Archeological Survey India 2016).

Archacology is a composite science that invokes diverse scientific disciplines in the interpretation of data, and applies artistic approach, skill and imagination, wherever necessary, to arrive at a logical conclusion. It has come a long way now to reveal recent as well as remote times of human history whether recorded or far beyond that.. It takes into account all aspects of life including natural situation and conditions. Archaeology thus infuses blood and life to a listless body of dry objects. In this direction, Dr. Syed Jamal Hasan has made an effort in this book entitled Buddhist Sites of North-east India, and Black-Slipped Ware in North India: An Archacology Study.

A few weeks ago, my friend Dr. Agam Prasad, the Publisher, approached me to write forward to this book. I readily agreed to it as pretty well know the author ever since he was a young archaeologist, and as such he was associated with me during the last season of the Indo-French Archaeological Expedition, jointly led by Henri-Paul Frankfort and me.
