News Letter for 2013

The year of 2013 was quite a busy one at the CASTEI. Two courses—‘Ancient Indian Ceramics: An Introduction’ and ‘Introduction to Prehistory’—organized by the Centre received great response from both scholars and students. Prof. D. K. Bhattacharya, formerly of the Department of Anthropology, Delhi University, held more than eighty students enthralled in his series of three-day long lecture sessions as a Visiting Fellow at the Centre. The occasional lecture delivered by Dr Sukanya Sharma of IIT Guwahati, also received enthusiastic response.
