Recent Excavations and findings

Attirampakkam, India (2018)

The Discovery of 385,000 years old stone tools like blades from chunks of quartz, at a site in Tamilnadu, astonished anthropologists and archaeologists as well.  This discovery is the earliest evidence of Levallois technology in India pushing back the technological timeline by 250,000 years, as per the journal Nature. These findings challenge the “Out-of-Africa” theory and reveal that Levallois tools emerged in India much earlier than Africa and Europe.

Bhirrana excavations (2016)

Carbon dating of pottery, animal bones, and other things at different trenches and levels of settlements at Bhiranna confirms the age of settlement >9 ka BP (9000 years old). Now experts believe that Indian civilization is more than 9000 years old,  which is 2,500 years older than previously thought and predates Egypt and Mesopotamia. The excavation study was carried out by ASI, IIT Kharagpur, and DC Pune.

Narmada Human (1982)

Noted geologist Arun Sonakia found the only known fossil of a human ancestor from South Asia on the banks of the Narmada river in MP. The Narmada Man, a fossil skull, belongs to the category of Homo erectus and the age of the fossil is likely to be 500,000 to 600,000 years. The discovery has put India on the world fossil map and proved the presence of early humans in the subcontinent.

4000-year-old chariots  (2018)

ASI has unearthed 4000-year-old chariots, swords, daggers, combs, and ornaments during an excavation in Sanauli village, Uttar Pradesh. The wheels and the pole have been found decorated with copper triangles, symbolic of the rays of the sun. For the first time in India,  these types of coffins were found, highly decorated with anthropomorphic figures and floral motifs. These discoveries further demolish the already-debunked Aryan Invasion theory (AIT).

Rakhigarhi DNA study (2019)

The DNA studies of the skeletal remains of a 4,500-old woman excavated from Rakhigarhi, an Indus Valley Civilization site, have found no traces of foreigners.
