Epigraphia Carnatica!

No, it is not about Carnatic music, but is a collection of inscriptions dating from 3rd-4th century AD to 19th century from the Karnataka region.
The project was the brainchild of Professor S. Settar, then Chairman of the ICHR. "The Epigraphia is an extraordinary feat of scholarship. Nowhere in the country had the epigraphical wealth of a State been collected and presented so systematically. The entire history of the Old Mysore region till modern times can be written from it," Settar told Frontline.
Here is the full story from Frontline.
