Acheulian Culture in Peninsular India
Acheulian Culture in Peninsular India
Description

From the Jacket

The Indian sub-continent particularly the peninsular India, is recognized as one of the richest areas of Acheulian occupation in the Old world. This research work is a detailed study of the Acheulian Culture system in India –signifying the earliest cultural occupation here.

The book examines the cultural material of the Acheulian phases in its ecological setting to throw light on the distribution pattern, nature of habitats, quaternary deposits, mammalian and hominid remains, land use and subsistence, site formation process, genesis ad chronology of the Acheulian cultural system. Incorporating his own field observations over the last three decades and more as well as integrating and synthesizing the available data and evidence on Acheulian culture, Dr. R.S. Pappu presents a comprehensive understanding of the Acheulian system and in general behavioural patterns of early hunting and food gathering communities. He also provides an account of the progress of palaeolithic research in India since the first discovery of Palaeolithic settlement by Foote in 1863, tracing the major projects ad contributions of noted Indian geo-archaeologists.

About the Author

He is a scholar of international repute in geo-archaeology who has investigated pre and proto-historic sites in varied ecological settings in different regions of the country. Of significance is his prehistory and Quaternary study in the Kaladgi basin and excavation of Palaeolithic sites of Angadwadi, and Chirki-Nevasa, wadoli and Inamgaon. Among his publications, which include research papers in various national and international journals, are monographs on Pleistocene studies in the Upper Krishna Basin and Man-Land Relationship during Palaeolithic Times in the Kaladgi basin, Karnataka.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
