A Forgotten Empire: Vijayanagar; A Contribution To The History Of India (Part 2)
Robert Sewell (1845–1925)[citation needed] worked in the civil service of the Madras Presidency during the period of colonial rule in India.[1] He was Keeper of the Madras Record Office[2] and was tasked with responsibility for documenting ancient inscriptions and remains in the region, As with other British administrators of his type at that period, his purpose was not scholarly but rather to bolster administrative control by constructing a history that placed British rule as a virtue and a necessity rather than something to be denigrated. Portrayal of historic factionalism among local figureheads and dominion by alien despots would, it was thought, enhance the perception that only the British could rescue the country from its past.[1]
