Mesolithic Age of India

There is a possibility of the migration to India of the modern human from Myanmar in the East. This is evident from the weapons, tools and fossils unearthed from Tripura and Eastern Bangladesh. The skeletal remains excavated from Sarai Nahar Rai, and Mahananda, both Late Mesolilthic centers of central Uttar Pradesh, are as old as 10,000 years, according to experts. Arrow-heads, other tools and ornaments, all made of bone, have also been unearthed from these sites. The remains gathered from Adamgarh of the Narmada Valley are some 80,000 years old. These include the chips and pieces from the bones of dogs, water buffaloes, oxen and pigs. Hand-made potteries were also found there. The Adamgarh findings denote an expanded from of the Mesolithic culture. Figures of humans holding club-like weapons, and the figure of a woman carrying some load are depicted in the drawings in the caves of Bhimbetka in Madhya Pradesh. But these pictures do not give any suggestion of rural life or agriculture.
