Illustrations: 330 colour 80 b/w illustrations Description: This is the first time that earrings worn in ancient India are studied comprehensively taking into account the excavated material which is compared to the earrings depicted on the sculptures of the different periods. A classification is attempted on the basis of types, shapes, materials and periods. Some revealing conclusions emerge, like the perennity of some forms, the permanency of the symbols depicted on them, which are mostly solar, their origin in the Harappan culture, and the geographical unity of the usage of certain types. A large number of coloured photographs show the earrings worn from the Harappan period into medieval India. The moulds to make metal earrings are also studied - particularly, the controversial stone discs and rings. Additionally, the nandipada or taurine symbol, the Mother Goddess, the conch shell, the beads, amulets, as also solar symbolism are studied in separate appendices, since they are relevant to this subject.

China and East Africa: Ancient Ties and Contemporary Flows marks the culmination of a new round of archaeological and historical research on the relations between China and Africa, from the origins to the present. Africa and Asia have always been in constant contact, through land and seas. The contributors to this volume debate and present the results of their research on the very complex and intricate networks of connections that crisscrossed the Indian Ocean and surrounding lands linking Africa to East Asia. A growing number of speakers of Austronesian languages returned to Africa, reaching Madagascar in the early centuries of the Common Era. The diffusion of domesticated plants, like bananas, from New Guinea to South Asia and Africa where phytoliths are dated to the mid-fourth millennium in Uganda and mid-first millennium BCE in southern Cameroon, provide additional evidence on early interactions between Africa and Asia. Africa and Asia have always been in constant contact, through land and seas. Edited by Chapurukha Kusimba, Tiequan Zhu, and Purity Wakabari Kiura, this collection explores different facets of the interaction between China and Africa, from their earliest manifestations to the present and with an eye to the future.
