About the Author: Dr. Alok Kanungo was born in Orissa and grew up in close contact with many tribal communities of Eastern and north-eastern India. His early childhood experiences led him to eventually focus on the archaeology and ethnographic study of tribal and ancient technology. For more than a decade he has been traveling and documenting the rich heritage of the Nagas of northeast India, and the Bondos and Jaungs of Orissa. He has spent considerable time in the field, living in villages and towns where these communities trade. He has worked in many areas where it is difficult to say where anthropology or history stop and archaeology begins. He has studied and documented traditional glass bead making areas in many regions of India. He has carried out excavation at Kopia, and ancient glass manufacturing site in Uttar Pradesh, to understand the history of glass in India. He has published extensively on the subject of glass and glass bead production, and written on edited six books and more than two dozens research articles in various journals. He is also editor of the South Asian Archaeology Series published by British Archaeological Reports, Oxford and editorial board member of Archaeological, Journal of World Archaeology Congress. He has been recipient of Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researcher, Fullbright Professional Fellowship, Homi Bhabha Fellowship, British Academy Fellowship, Rackow Grant, Nehru Trust U.K. Visiting Fellowship, Malti Nagar Ethnoarchaeology Award and several grants from Bead Societies.
