Book Description

These Lists of Antiquarian Remains in the Central Provinces and Berar are compiled from old manuscript and printed lists, very imperfect, General Sir Alexander Cunningham's Reports, the Central Provinces and Berk. Gazetteers, a short list in Dr. Burgess' Lists of Remains in the Bombay Presidency, additions and corrections received from District Officers, and information gleaned personally during two tours which I made in 1892-93-94 through portions of these districts. The orders of Government with regard to this compilation are contained in the Government of Bombay Resolutions in the General Department, Nos. 2353 of the 12th July, 3851 of the 24th October, 3912 of the 2Sth October, 1892, and in the Government of India letters in the Revenue and Agricultural Department (Archaeology), Nos. 3r of the 8th August and 447 of the 19th October 1894.

This does not profess to be a perfect and exhaustive list and must be accepted as provisional, for there are still very large tracts in the Central Provinces which have not yet been examined by the antiquarian, and hardly by anyone else. Owing, too, to the want of an elementary acquaintance with antiquarian remains, or even a passing interest in them, on the part of many District Officers, much of the information obtained from them is very defective, and many entries of uninteresting and modern objects have been included in their returns which should not have found a place at all. To avoid the possibility of removing genuine entries in weeding these out, in the absence of fuller information, I have allowed many doubtful ones to stand as they are.

The classification for conservation purposes, also, as indicated by the Roman numerals down the margins opposite each entry, is, in many instances, provisional, and it is hoped that District Officers and others will from time to time enter upon their copies of this volume all such corrections and additions as may be found necessary in view of the possible revision of the lists in the future.

Some names may be found incorrectly spelt. All sorts or spelling have been used in the various old lists and Gazetteers from which they have been taken. Before compilation rough lists were circulated among District Officers for additions or corrections. Since the final lists have been printed it was found necessary to refer again to those officers for the correct location of certain places for the maps, and this has in some instances brought forth new spelling and correction of names which were nverl.00ked in the first instance, but have come too late to be used in the text.
