The concluding section of the book looks at the most recent reclamations and recasting of architectural monuments in Delhi. One example of a medieval ruin refashioned as a Hindu site and another of the declaration of New Delhi as a heritage zone illustrate the ongoing project of creating new histories for old monuments and old histories for new monuments. Most importantly, the epilogue stresses the blurred boundaries between affect and archive in the creation of monuments—both medieval and modern.
