A study of the murals of Alchi monastery

This grant was to facilitate research for my MA dissertation, and was a great help. It supported my travel to Leh and Alchi as well as enabling me to photo document the monasteries of Alchi.

A cultural resource centred sustainable development model for the region of Ladakh

This research visit was sought in order to obtain materials to contribute to my PhD dissertation. During the period of the award it was possible to access a number of important sources of information pertaining to the Ladakh region, the most significant among these being the Album of Pictorial Maps of the area know as the "Wise Album' as well as the Schlagintweit survey expedition accounts. At present (2005) I am writing a paper based on the "Wise Maps" which will become a chapter in my PhD.
