The publications associated with the Project span a period of more than 20 years. Many of these are edited and/or authored by the Co-directors, John M Fritz and George Michell. Other publications involve participating research scholars, colleagues and associates, most of whom spent time with us at the site.

The following list of publications is divided into different sections to facilitate access. You can go to a section by clicking on the list in the right hand column. The list includes all those works that have already appeared to early 2014. We will update this list as new monographs, reports and articles appear in India and other countries.
