Despite the tremendous amount of potentialities, the region, particularly the eastern part of eastern India, virtually remained a marginal area of research. The first excavation of palaeolithic site was conducted at Kuliana in Mayurbhanj by N.K. Bose and D. Sen in 1948, but the work was not followed up seriously by subsequent scholars.
