D. Schlingloff, Fortified Cities of Ancient India, London 2014
(English translation of "Die altindische Stadt", Mainz 1969) is
certainly worth trying.
With best wishes

> Dear List members,
> In an article I am writing I want to refer to descriptions of

> dealing with such descriptions that I know of and have at home is
> J.K. de Cock, Eene oudindsiche stad volgens het epos (Groningen
> 1899). .I do not think that a reference to this book is useful in an
> English publication. Are there other books or articles about
> descriptions (not archaeological finds) of fortified towns in the
> epics (Shonaleeka Kaul deals mainly with Kāvya)?
