Established in 1966
One of the hallmarks of the department since its inception is its contribution in deciphering the inscriptions available locally. With experienced faculties, the students are provided with field-studies of historical sites and are introduced to the subjects like epigraphy, iconography and archeology. The department under Prakrith Study Centre guides the students to learn the ancient languages like Tulu and Prakrith.
