Prehistoric cave art of the Bhimbetka complex

The grant was received after I had completed background research on this project and was ready to go for my first field trip, an essential part of any archaeological research project. It allowed me to carry out fieldwork in Bhimbetka, Madhya Pradesh,  and adjoining areas. This was my first field trip and had an enormous impact on my career in Archaeology. It formed the basis of my study and helped me to crystallize my ideas. After receiving this award I have continued with my research and documentation work on other sites in similar geographical settings.
