Prehistoric Indians (A Tale of 500,000 Years)

Subinoy Gangopadhyay (Author)
Synopsis This book illuminates the mystery of advent of humans in India based on latest scientific data. The illustrative description of weaponry, cave-dwellings and rock paintings of Stone Age unravels the life-style, living condition and creative faculties of the primitive Indians. The 5000 years old Sindhu-Saraswari valley civilization has been rediscovered showing the achievement of ancient Indians in the field of engineering, sculpture, art and trade. And new light has been thrown on its decline. The cultural life and activity of Vedic Indians including their skill in mining and metallurgy have been evaluated from synthesis of their literature. The custom and tradition of Indian Megaliths have been highlighted with reference to their expertise in iron smelting and making iron tools. The themes of all the chapters are illustrated with colour photographs and maps. It is hoped that this book will bring delight to common readers as well as students of science.
