Remains of Palace Structures New Light on Hampi: Recent Research at Vijayanagara, edited by John M. Fritz and George Michell,

Title:Remains of Palace Structures New Light on Hampi: Recent Research at Vijayanagara, edited by John M. Fritz and George Michell,

Abstract:The palaces in the Royal Centre at Vijayanagara revealed by the excavations represent the earliest known palace structures from an urban site. These stand in compounds defined by high tapering walls, and are approached through sequences of courts with passageways and doorways that require multiple change of direction. The walls are of rubble masonry and earth, coated with mud and lime plaster, with bricks used for wall niches, projections, and openings. Iron nails and clamps found together with charcoal and ash in the excavations indicate that pillars, beams, and rafters were of wood and were subjected to fire. Palace interiors are divided into ascending series of floor levels, each defined by a basement.
