Old hand-written document recovered from the rubble of a house Limbu, Bina


Old rulers used to issue hand-written and signed documents to their courtiers and locals, either as the rights for the use of resources or for acknowledging their services and loyalty. Such documents would be passed down from one generation to the next as it represented their heritage. Taken during the 1st phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
