Ever since I wrote about the presence of evidence of early Indian history, I have been searching for further authentic information.
I had earlier written on,
A Million year old Advanced Tamil site near Chennai, India,
Poompuhar, Tamil Nadu being 30,000 years old,
Lemuria, home of Tamils, 230 Million years,
Jwalapuram, Andhra, India, 74,000 years,
Thiruvannaamalai, Tamil Nadu 3.94 billion years,
Thirupathi, Andhra Indiay, 2100 million years,
Bengal was in existence and was ruled by kings 25,000 Years ago,
Dwaraka is at least thirty years old,
I had also written on the fact that the first human migration took place from India and earliest Human DNA had been traced to Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Kindly search Google +relevant search term from the above for details.
Now I have come across evidence that suggest human habitation of India 1.5 millions years ago.
1,500,000 years before today.
‘Acheulian stone tools which is about 1.51 million years old, have been discovered in Chennai near Attirampakkam. These stones were found by researchers from the Chennai-based Sharma Centre for Heritage Education.
The discovery indicates that early humans (hominins), used these tools. The tools are much older than those found in Europe. These tools are also found in several countries in South Asia, including India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
More than hundreds of different tools have been discovered from the Attirampakkam site. The most common ones are hand-axes, cleavers and small flakes. The stone axes are elongated teardrop or ovate-shaped with bifacial symmetry.
Unlike the hand-axes, the cleavers have broad cutting edges.
The fact that Lemuria existed and migration took place from the south of present India gets strengthened.
