FOREWORD

 

      THE scientific study of the history of Karnataka began more than half a century ago when Dr. J. F. Fleet, Sir R.G.Bhandarkar, Elliot, Lewis Rice and other scholars began the work of collecting, editing and elucidating the numerous lithic records of the Kannada districts. But excavations were not widely undertaken and literary sources were comparatively neglected.            Dr. Fleet, however, was convinced that much real history might be brought to light by examining the prasastis or introductions of the works of the early Kannada authors, especially among the Jainas(1).

Thus for example a history of the Gangas of Talakad can be extracted by following the chronological order of the extracts from the records of the Ganga dynasty. Each extract is furnished with a short historical note and important references to the problems raised therein are given in the footnotes.The work of compiling the sources was undertaken in 1928 and much new material that has come to light since then has been included. The extracts in this volume refer to the dynasties of the later Satavahanas, the Gangas of Talakad, the Kadambas of Banavasi, the Chalukyas of Badami, the Rashtrakutas of Malkhed, the Chalukyas of Kalyani, the Kalachuryas of Kalyani and the Yadavas of Devagiri. It is proposed to include in a separate volume the Sources of the ...contd Page 2
