The excavation of a Chalcolithic site in North West Rajasthan

With funding from the NTICVA between January and April 2005 I assisted with a number of archaeological projects in India. Firstly I spent one and a half months excavating at the site of Gilund, Rajasthan. The excavations at this Chalcolithic site were being conducted jointly by Vasant Shinde of the Deccan College Pune and Gregory Possehl of the University of Pennsylvania. The second part of my project consisted of three weeks studying at the Deccan College. Lastly I spent one week assisting a student from the University of Chicago with fieldwork for her PhD dissertation.
