Evidence of human occupation and humid climate of 30 Ka in the alluvium of southern Ganga Plain

, : Evidence of human occupation and humid climate of 30 Ka in the alluvium of southern Ganga Plain. Current Science (Bangalore) 76(7): 1022-1026, April 10

A stratigraphic horizon in the cliff of Yamuna river at Kalpi has yielded rich vertebrate fossils, namely an elephant tusk (3.54 m long), shoulder blade of elephant, molars of equus, bovids, bos, etc. along with fragments of bones showing definite evidence of human workmanship. Human femurs with unique pencil sharpening are also found in the calcrete conglomerate in Yamuna river bed, which are time equivalent to above horizon. This horizon represents deposit of humid climate around 30 Ka, and is affected by intense seismic event. This is so far the oldest human occupation site in the Ganga Plain.
