Madrasian Culture Benchmark 1.5 Million Year Attirambakkam

The ancient history of India is astounding especially for those who have been fed on a diet of history of India by Muslim Invaders, Britishers and Indian liberal secular Historians. Though research has been carried out in India to find its antiquity, though it is minimal,the results are not known to public in general.

I have been writing ,in this blog,about the antiquity of Bharatvarsha, Hinduism,Tamil and Sanatan Dharma.

I have been and am providing foreign sources to back up my claims,though there are plenty of Indian sources,because most people, especially from India, seem to lend more credibility to sources,though Indian sources are ancient and equally ,if not more authentic.

I have also written about the ancient archeological sites India,relating to Sanatana Dharma and Tamils.

One such is about the archeological site at Athirambakkam,near Chennai,Tamil Nadu,India.This site was the home of an advanced Tamil civilization and it is dated to be 1.5 Million years, using Cosmic Ray Exposure Dating dating

This site is a benchmark in Archeology as the group of sites yielding tools of this period,old stone age ,is called Madrasian Culture,so named after the capital of the state ,near which these tools were found.

I have seen sites which, though appear to be neutral ,question and cast doubts on even proven archeological finds.

The information on Athirambakkam stating that it was 1.5 Million years old was sought to discredited by saying it was an error and it was only 26,000 years old.Similarly the dating of Poompuhar,Tamil Nadu,date,which is about 20,000 years old,this also is sought to be brushed aside. I am providing information on Madrasian Culture fetal below,my article on Athirambakkam and Poompuhar antiquity.Poompuhar.

Those who want to be an Ostrich about Indian history,may continue to be so,for world does not become dark if cats close their eyes.

‘The Madrasian was named for its type site of Attirampakkam, near to the city of Madras (now known as Chennai), discovered by British archaeologist and geologist Robert Bruce Foote in 1863.[2][3] The oldest tools at Attirampakkam have been dated to 1.5 million years ago’

On 25th March 2011, the Indian and world archaeological community was blown away by a small, two-page article in the journal Science, one of the most prestigious international scientific journals on the planet. The article announced with zero fanfare that there was now irrefutable proof of the existence of an Early Pleistocene Presence of Acheulian Hominins in South Asia. In layman’s terms, the antiquity of human ancestors colonising Southern India was now a solid 1.51 million years ago, if not earlier – older than any dates of such a colonisation of Europe….

In an independent research study, Petraglia and his colleagues have analysed Acheulian tools in India that appear to be only 120,000 years old. The two findings suggest that the Acheulian toolmakers inhabited India for 1.4 million years – from 1.5 million years ago to 120,000 years ago.

  1. Sir,
    Last year I had visited Vellore Fort.THere are two archaeological museums inside the fort.One is just near the entrance gate and the other is some distance away.In first museum in a glass almirah I saw some stone tools including some axes excavated from the site of Athirambakkam.I took photographs and posted them on social media with a caption that 1.8 million years old tools are placed in a very unsafe manner.I have read in a number of posts on Google that the finds are almost 1,8 million years old.When I wrote about the antiquity of Indian history and human history some persons expressed their doubts that human life began in Africa and from there moved to India some seventy five thousand years ago.But they forgot that cave paintings of Bhimbetka near Jabalpur in MP are almost one hundred thousand years old.Second objection is that there are no fossil finds of any human being in India.
    I wish to add that millions of years ago Indian land mass was almost connected to Africa continent via Lemuria. That part has submerged now.And I think that human race was thriving in Lemuria region and from there they came to area of Athirambakkam and went to Africa too. But as the landmass of Lemuria has submerged no human fossils can be traced now.But since land mass of Africa has continued to exist some human fossils are found there.If by any technique we can trace the land mass of Lemuria and excavate there we may find human fossils there.This will prove the theory that human life began in South India that included Lemuria and from there they moved to north after Sunami or Jal Plavan.Lot of research is needed for that.But it is not impossible.Today we have the required technology to explore Lemuria.


  2. We have a glorious history, a rich cultural heritage. Some of the South Indian temples like Brahadeeswar temple at Tanjore are unique for their divinity and architectural importance. We have a rich Guru Parambara, the tradition of following the lead given by Guru. You have done great service in highlighting the importance of our rich culture, our values and ourdedication to follow the path of Sanatana Dharma. This culture which dates back to 5000 years is strong enough and would survive for all time to come.
