Attention to a civilisation's core and periphery and to the inner and boundary frontiers defining its dominion, has fruitfully informed many historical studies across the world. Examining such fundamental issues as: the limits of a civilisation's growth, the nature of satellite societies at the far ends of an empire, the diffusion of cultural traits, and the networks that connect geographically-dispersed politics, etc. can illuminate a host of important issues germane to both synchronic and diachronic studies. Comprehending the dynamic forces shaping contemporary civilisations and understanding the geographical factors conditioning the historical trajectories of regions are the conceptual rewards for pursuing the logic of core-periphery analysis.

In this article, the authors are concerned with the core and periphery in the Kathmandu Valley. After introducing the phenomenon of the Newar diaspora across Nepal, they present historical materials on two towns of the Arun region: Taksar (Bhojpur) and Chainpur.
