Baldev Singh Karir (Author)

The research on which it is based is supported by evidences from related disciplines relevant and feasible in the valley of Sutlej. In the first part, a comprehensive account of Quaternary geomorphological environment is presented. Data on morphometery, palaeo-currents and pebble fabric analysis, heavy mineral contents and the order of superposition of Post-Sivalik sediments has been sifted in an effort to understand post-Sivalik palaeoenvironment in the region. In the second part, this work deals with the prehistory of the area. A detailed and thorough presentation of a typological and analytical data with description of prehistoric sites and finds of the area has been presented. Finds of the other investigators have also been considered along- with the author's own discoveries.

Special emphasis has been laid on careful presentation of exact analysis of tool types, their combinations, and frequencies. The work complies with the criteria used in evaluating such a work, that is, it presents the research, which assumes a critical attitude, introduces known types from new area and contributes to an extension of knowledge.
