History of Bareilly Essay

The orbit has, also, acted as a mint for a major part of its history. From archaeological dapple of view the district of B beilly is very rich. The extensive remains of Ahichhatra, the pileus town of Northern Panchala have been discovered near Ramnagar village of Aonla Tehsil in the district. It was during the first excavations at Ahichhatra (194044) that the painted grey ware, associated with the advent of the Aryans in Ganga Yamuna Valley, was accepted for the first time in the earliest levels of the site.Nearly five railyard coins belonging to periods earlier than that of Guptas have been yielded from Ahichhatra. It has also been one of the richest sites in India from the point of view of the total yield of terracotta. Some of the masterpieces of Indian terracotta art are from Ahichhatra. In fact the classification made of the terracotta human figurines from Ahichhatra on cubic yard of style and to some extent stratigraphy became a model for determining the stratigraphy of consequent excavations at other sites in the Ganga Valley.On the basis of the existing material, the archeology of the region helps us to get an idea of the cultural sequence from the runner of the 2nd millennium BC up to the 11th c. AD. Some old-fashioned mounds in the district have also been discovered by the Deptt. of antediluvian patriarch History and culture, Rohilkhand University, at Tihar-Khera (Fatehganj West), Pachaumi, Rahtuia, Kadarganj and Sainthal. 2
