The above-cited study on the copper hoards and the archaeometallurgy of the Subcontinent went to press in 1987, is dated 1989, and appeared in 1992 abroad. It builds on my book of 1985 regarding this same thematic area. Thus, I completed the catalogue of finds and of sites (particularly those of Orissa), mapped the findspots, including those of the culturally related Ochre Coloured Pottery, and those of copper ore deposits, listed for the first time the spectroscopic analyses of large numbers of hoard artefacts, and provided new interpretative models to explain the importance and origin of the hoards. The following notes are intended to complement my study and less so to justify it.
