Answer :

Inscriptions are the writings which are engraved on rocks, pillars, stones, ivory, metals, terracotta, etc.

1.Inscriptions are the archaeological source which has more reliability for writing history.


2. Since these inscriptions narrate the events of the concerned period and have a direct relationship with those events, they seem to have more reliability than the other sources.


3. They give us information about the political, cultural, economic, educational and religious practices of those times.


Ashoka’s inscriptions at the Sarnath pillar which depicts the rule of Ashoka, Uttarameruru inscriptions which reflects about the Chola kings, Samudra Gupta’s Allahabad pillar inscription are some of the examples of these inscriptions.
