A Visit to Purana Quila

A visit to Purana Quila was organized on Thursday, 6 April’ 2023 for the history students of class XII to witness the excavations being carried out in Purana Quila.  

The archaeologist on the site gave students insight on how the area to be excavated is determined.

Firstly, archaeologists explore inscriptions and literary texts. Or they may use GPR (ground penetrating radar) which identifies anomalies, different from the texture of natural soil underground. Thirdly, they try identifying mounds or high levels of land. These mounds may develop as people live in a place and discard objects and the like. Thus, the highest points of these mounds and the slope which is near a water source are important points for excavations. They reveal objects in chronological order, from one civilization to another. This is what makes the Purana Quila complex an important site for it lay on the eastern bank of the Yamuna river in ancient times.

Students were briefed on what is identified as early, mature, and late civilization.

The archaeologist explained the two excavation methods, vertical and horizontal. One first selects a 10x10 ft area divided into 4 trenches of 5x5ft.Vertical excavation involves exploring where the earliest period goes to, examining the natural soil, deeper as one proceeds. Horizontal excavation involves digging a trench and expanding the area in terms of length and breath. Once a structure is found, horizontal expansion comes to a halt and vertical expansion can take place.

Furthermore, knowledge of pottery is extremely important for an archaeologist to determine the context, function and significance of pieces of pottery that are discovered.

Students visited the two museums within the complex which housed remarkable artifacts of stone, burnt clay, terracotta and the like those of mythological figures like brahma, ornaments, seals, pottery, heavily jeweled women and much more.

The interactive concourse ignited the inquisitiveness of students and gave them a very close insight into the work of archaeologists.
