Gandhinagar, 12 January 2020

A human settlement was found near the Jakhau port of Kutch 1.14 lakh years ago. This news was published on 28 October 2019 in Deccan Herald. Archaeologists have discovered 1.14 million years old ancient Stone Age sites in India. Which is in Sandhav village of Abdasa taluka of Kutch, Gujarat. A new story of human migration outside Africa is found in Kutch.

60 thousand years theory wrong

Evidence of modern human suzerainty has been found on the Indian coast in Kutch, Gujarat, which is 114,000 years old. Homo sapiens are believed to have arrived in India from a maximum of 45,000 to 60,000 years ago. Which is going wrong. After 2017, again in March 2020, more research is being done in Kutch. Some other remains will also be found.

Kutch is already under development in India

There was a 114,000-year-old human settlement at Sandhav in the Naira Valley, 15 kilometers from the coast. Is a Palaeolithic site. The population was populated with Middle Palaeolithic culture. India had a Mesolithic culture long before any modern humans came out of Africa. Played a role in the development of Central Palaeolithic culture in India.

Now two possibilities

There are two main possibilities of migration from Africa to India. Men and women may have used the coastal route 60,000 years ago. While others may come to India 128,000–71,000 years before the route.

Africa Motherland

Our ancestors, known as Homo sapiens, lived in Africa 2 to 3 million years ago. After living there for about 1 million years, he started moving to other places in the world.

Global Research in Bhuj

The amendment was done in 2017 by the Archaeological Survey Department, Prof. Head of the Department of Archeology at Maharaja Sayaji University in Sandhwa area near Bhuj. Ajit Prasad and researcher James Blinkhorn from Oxford University in Britain are challenging the theory that human settlements in India did not exist 60,000 years ago. Tested using the OSL (optionally simulated minions) technique at Oxford University Laboratory.

Wooden handle stone spears found in Kutch

Homo sapiens of Kutch used tools made of stone. It is possible that these remains are related to this type of device. In particular, a relic is considered part of an instrument called an intricate coin. It is shaped like a spear or arrowhead. Which would have been used for hunting at that time.

Use of technology in weapons

1.14 lakh years ago came from Africa to Kutch. The Lavalava technique can be used exclusively to make intricate coins. This is because the prevailing blade technique for making Homo sapiens tools has been considered by experts later. Earlier, he used the Lavalava technique.

The theory of Central India was wrong

The 2011 study also found Homo sapiens devices in central India. Which is believed to be 45 to 60 thousand years old and made from blade technology. The instruments now found in the evening are 1.14 lakh years old. Under these circumstances, the theory of Homo sapiens coming to India so long ago may gain momentum.

Migration from Africa to all continents

According to the researches proved so far in the world, Homo sapiens may have arrived at different times in different countries. 1 million years ago man lived in Africa, 45 thousand years ago in China, 45 to 60 thousand years ago in Australia, Europe, 10 to 12 thousand years ago in America and 10 thousand years in India including South Asia. first. This is believed to be the case. Now concrete evidence has been found from Kutch.

Human skeleton

Fossils of Homo sapiens were found in the Gangetic valley in India. Which is not more than 10 thousand years old. Similar fossils are 10 thousand years old in Gujarat. The oldest fossil bones in India are the oldest in Kutch. Human culture was in Kutch before the Ganga Bank culture.

In 2011, 45–60 thousand years old equipment was found from central India. It was believed that the accession of Homo sapiens to India could not have happened earlier.

What is Homo sapiens?

Homo sapiens is a Latin word. Homo means man and sapin means intelligent. Homo sapiens is the ancestor of modern man. His form is similar to today’s man. His face was the same as the man of today. His brain capacity also developed like the man of today.

Area of ​​1.2 million years ago

Evidence from Asia suggests that it began to expand from Africa 1.2 million years ago. Zimbabwe Blinkhorn, the lead author of the study at London’s Royal Holloway University, told DH that there is evidence of a site in Sandhwani, Kutch. Blinkhorn and his colleagues conducted survey work in Maharaja Sayajirao University, Baroda and Max Planck Institute of Science of Human History in Kutch.

Special weapon

Stone weapons with special intricate points have been found. Which was used for spears. Which is attached to the handle. Used like a knife. Such devices are found in the oldest Central Paleolithic tool kit in India. The study, published in the journal Quaternary Science Reviews, also indicates why people have chosen Sandhav to live.

Township near the port

The Sandhav village is an important site in the field of early human research. Researchers of archaeology department of India and abroad are coming here to study. Sandhav village on the Jakhau beach near Abadasa is one of the five pilgrimages of the Jain community, which is located in the historic Derasar.

Chennai after Kutch

After Kutch, 60 km from Chennai, another theory has emerged from Atirampakkam village. Indian scientists are challenging the world’s theory of newly discovered Stone Age weapons on 31 January 2018 in a village near Chennai. It is believed that the man was born in Africa and traveled worldwide. But the stone weapons found in India reject this theory of the world. Because the stone weapons of Africa are found from India.

Did humans live in India 3.85 lakh years ago?

The Middle Palaeolithic is believed to have brought modern humans from Africa to India about 125,000 years ago. New evidence refutes the fact that, about 385,000 years ago, the Middle Palaeolithic culture did not exist in India. A new study has appeared in the journal Nature. Many hominin species associated with Middle Paleolithic culture may have more complex patterns between species than they were about 125,000 years ago.

Atirampakkam Site

The discovery of the archaeological site of Atirampakkam R. B. Foote did it in 1863. It was later investigated by many scholars in the 1930s and 1960s. Professor Pappu and Drs. Sharma Center. Kumar Akhilesh has been excavating the site since 1999.

Contribution of Ahmedabad

The present work was done in collaboration with Professor Gunnell of the University of Lyon, France. Professor Ashok K. Singhvi, Haresh M. Rajpara and D.R.S. Anil d. Shukla is from Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad. No human or hominin remains were found at the site. Which makes it difficult to know why mankind lived here and how to make tools.

Weapons from 3 million years ago

Around 300,000 years ago, in parts of Africa, human ancestors began making small, sharp tools using sharp pieces of stone. Which he created using a technique called levollois.(translated form Gujarati)
