From the introduction:

"The fifties of the twentieth century marked an important period in the archaeological studies in India when a number of Chalcolithic sites were discovered in the Ahmednagar, Nasik and Dhule Districts of Maharastra. The results of these excavations could trace back the history of human culture in this part of Deccan from Early Historic period to Chalcolithic period. There have indeed been certain characteristic differences in the stages and objects of the culture at locations but it was evident that the Chalcolithic Culture evolved in a considerably large area of Deccan and where fusion with Post-Harappan culture from further west was noticed before the Early Historic period. Ahmednagar District, which lies in the semiarid zone of Deccan with low-irregular rainfall, was earlier considered popularly as a ‘famine district’ because of phenomenal crop failure. However, the area was once a site of a number of Chalcolithic cultural sites like, Jorwe, Nevasa, Daimabad, etc. A number of phases of
Chalcolithic Culture were recognised amongst several sites in Pune, Nasik, Alunednagar, Dhule and Wardha Districts of Maharastra but the stratigraphic positions of the phases in relation to age were not quite clear until the results of excavation in Daimabad were available. The archaeological significance of Daimabad lies not only in presenting the stratigraphic chronology of at least five phases developed through years but it had brought to our notice about the presence of various animals and plants which threw light on the past vegetation and wild animals around Daimabad as welll as agricultural crops and domestic livestocks of the ancient people."
