HISTORIES

Inumismatics has been given the rare privilege of being able to present the history articles written by the eminent new historian and researcher Dr Shashank Sinha. 

Fully illustrated with wonderful colour photographs.

Dr Sinha has the rare ability to clearly express with great readability aspects of history that are thought, at times by some, to be either controversial or surrounded by popular myth and legend that somehow obscures the reality of the situation.

The previously published articles are from two sources.

1. Articles from FRONTLINE. These are works generally of between 4500-5000 words clearly giving the true picture of real history surrounding the places, times or events being discussed. These are real living histories.

2. Articles from THE WIRE. These are generally shorter pieces of around 2000 words. The look at specific items of debate surrounding certain heritage sites.

Active links are given to these articles.
