2 lakh-year old stone tools found in Bargarh district

Pre-historic era stone tools, artefacts and weapons have been unearthed during archaeological excavations by Sambalpur University in Bargarh district, a faculty of the university said.
P K Behera, associate professor of history, who is leading the ongoing explorations and excavations by involving post graduate students and research scholars since 2015, said the tools would be at least 2 lakh years old. “These would tell us about human migration to this part of the world and their habitation,” Behera told .

“Stone tools manufactured by these early people show their potential skill in using different types of contemporary technology and have striking similarities with those reported from several places of eastern and southern Africa, besides western Europe which have been proved to be pre-historic,” he said.
