The introductory chapters provide the topographical and historical background. In the main body of the work Sir John discusses the various groups of buildings and the material they were found to contain: the early city sites of Bhir Mound and Sirkap, the Greek temple of Jandial, the later Sirsukh site, the Buddhist monuments, the Dharmarājika Stúpa, and other monasteries, funeral mounds, settlements and villages, including Khader Mohra, Kalawan, Giri, Kunala and Ghai, Mohra Moradu and Pippala, Jaulian, Bhamala, Bhallar, Lalchak and Badalpur. The numerous illustrations, maps and ground plans are an important adjunct to the text; there is also a short bibliography and a glossary of technical terms.
This is the fourth edition of the book, several new sites have been investigated; in the light of recent data the text needed thorough revision. The number of chapters has been increased from eleven to sixteen, and some new plates have been added.
