The Central Narmada Valley: A Study in Quaternary Palaeontology and Allied Aspects

G.L. Badam (Author)
Synopsis The book The Central Narmada Valley : A Study in Quaternary Palaeontology and Allied Aspects is the first attempt at studying a small stretch of he valley from a multi-disciplinary point of view incorporating the results of archaeology, geology, palaeontology and taphonomy.  New techniques and parameters have been applied to study and re-interpret these areas.  This book also summarizes the morphology, distribution pattern and evolutionary history of certain extinct animals in relation to cultural development.  With the help of modern analogies, the book attempts to build up a palaeoecological model for Narmada and its surrounding areas including some of the rock shelter sites.  The book extends the dimensions of understanding the life history of Narmada and its tributaries, not only by discovering and reinterpreting various biological and cultural events, but also by seeking to understand varied aspects like river behaviour, flood history and man-land relationship during the past.  The book should prove useful to students and researchers of river valley cultures in general and to those of Narmada Valley in particular.

About the author

G.L. Badam

Dr. Gyani Lal Badam, a leading quaternary geologist and palaeontologist, has vast experience in excavating and studying various palaeontological sites throughout the country. After obtaining his PhD on the Siwaliks of northwest India from the Punjab University, Chandigarh, he moved on to establish the discipline of palaeontology at the renowned Deccan College Postgraduate and Research Institute, Pune, where his academic interests diversified to include various river valleys in central and peninsular India. However, the focus of his research for some time has been the central Narmada Valley and some tributaries of the Godavari and Krishna rivers. After a tenure at the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, Bhopal, Dr. Badam is presently associated with the Department of Culture and Archaeology, Government of Chhattisgarh, Raipur, to establish a multicultural complex and to study some less known aspects of geoarchaeology of Chhattisgarh.
