The ninth volume of Heritage: Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies in Archaeology (2021-22) is presented here with great pleasure. The continued recognition of the journal in the UGC-CARE list since June 2017 is a pleasant achievement and, meantime, a challenge to cope with the increasing demand and expectations. The electronic form of the journal is made available on the official website, which is open access in nature (http://www.heritageuniversityofkerala.com). We would like to reiterate our policy on promoting the online version, which is open access and inexpensive to reach all alike. We thankfully acknowledge the University of Kerala for solely funding the publication of this journal in online and print form.
