Indore: Researchers claim to have
discovered signs of existence of primitive men in the Narmada
Valley by tracing their natural rock shelters and large number
of weapons and tools made by them in the western part of
Madhya Pradesh.

"The shelter and tools discovered dated back to
Paleolithic (stone) age," the researchers led by Mangal
Panchayatan Council`s head Vishal Verma said.

The group found 15 natural rock shelters and three caves
of where these men used to live in Dhar district. Besides,
they also found sites where over one lakh tools and weapons of
that age were scattered.

"It appeared that the signs are about 30,000 to one lakh
year old and majority of them narrates the tale of human
culture dating back to Paleolithic Age," Verma said.

"After a close study of these findings, it appeared that
these primitive persons used to live near rivers and chose
natural rock shelters on low mountains," Verma said.

The researchers have found existence of primitive men`s
shelters around river Narmada, Maan, Karam, Ghatwal, Chidi and
Mandavdi rivers.
