Champa, near Bhagalpur in Bihar is situated on the confluence of river the Ganga and the Champa. The excavation here has brought to light interesting evidence regarding the antiquity of this city which goes back to 3rd century B.C or much earlier (IAR 1971- 72). Due to limited nature of excavations, details are not available but whatever material has been brought to light suggest it to be a flourishing town during the Kushan period. Brick structures, red wares, terracotta and stone beads were unearthed from the Kushan levels here. (Sinha, 1979)
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
