    Abstract: The book is reissued under the Universities Press–IIM series in Metallurgy and Materials Science. A fascinating history of India’s legendary high-grade steel—wootz steel—which was highly prized and much sought after across the world for over two millennia. Wootz steel was used to make the fabled Damascus blades. Although Indian wootz steel was such an important material in the metallurgical history of mankind, there are no books devoted to Indian contributions. First brought out by Tata Steel in November 2004 as a celebration of the twin centenaries of J N Tata and J R D Tata, the book has been widely acclaimed. It is both scholarly as well as highly readable at the level of popular archaeo-science.
