Displaying India’s Heritage: Archaeology and the Museum Movement in Colonial India

Displaying India’s Heritage: Archaeology and the Museum Movement in Colonial India
Displaying India’s Heritage describes the history of museum-making in the Indian subcontinent in the 1800s and 1900s with special emphasis on the experience of Bengal. The central discussion focuses on the Indian Museum in Calcutta during the colonial period; the Museum began as a natural history collection. During the early part of the twentieth century, when scientific history writing placed an emphasis on archaeological knowledge, the Indian Museum became a repository of archaeological artefacts from across the subcontinent. Knowledge blended with nationalist pride about cultural heritage. Soon local museums began asserting their right over excavated artefacts and princely states presented the pre-eminent position of their families through palace museums. The emerging contest between imperialism and nationalism and the complex relationship between knowledge and power, began shaping the visualisation in the display boxes.

Based on strong archival research, this book highlights the connection between the museum movement and the broader political and cultural environment of the time. This important work will interest students of modern Indian cultural history, museology, archaeology and cultural studies.

Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilization

Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilization

This fully revised and updated third edition of the bestselling Ancient Egypt seeks to identify what gave ancient Egypt its distinctive and enduring characteristics, ranging across material culture, the mindset of its people, and social and economic factors.

In this volume, Barry J. Kemp identifies the ideas by which the Egyptians organized their experience of the world and explains how they maintained a uniform style in their art and architecture across three thousand years, whilst accommodating substantial changes in outlook. The underlying aim is to relate ancient Egypt to the broader mainstream of our understanding of how all human societies function.

Source material is taken from ancient written documents, while the book also highlights the contribution that archaeology makes to our understanding of Egyptian culture and society. It uses numerous case studies, illustrating them with artwork expressly prepared from specialist sources. Broad ranging yet impressively detailed, the book is an indispensable text for all students of ancient Egypt and for the general reader.
