Overview for Pre-Historic India

The prehistoric period in the history of humankind can roughly be calculated form 200000 BC to about 3500-2500 BC, when the first civilizations began to take shape. The history of India is no exception to the above-mentioned fact. The first modern human beings or the Homo sapiens set their foot on the Indian subcontinent anywhere between 200000 BC and 40000 BC and they soon spread throughout a large part of the subcontinent, including peninsular India. They continuously flooded the Indian subcontinent in wave after wave of migration from what is present-day Iran. These primitive people moved in groups of few families and mainly lived on hunting and gathering. While the males in the group spent most of their time in hunting, fishing and gathering food like fruits, roots, and berries, the females gathered food, looked after the children and the dwellings where they lived. This book, which we hope will lay the foundations for the next generation of Indian historians.
