Traces of Neolithic civilisation found in India

The mystery surrounding Kondavid Fort (Andhra Pradesh, India) continues to draw countless archaeologists. Now, a freelance archaeologist, K. Venkateswara Rao, has discovered traces of existence of Neolithic civilisation atop the fortress, the first-of-its kind finding at the site.

Mr. Rao, who retired as deputy director in the Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh, recently discovered a Megalithic menhir at Karempudi. Mr. Rao says that cup marks, pieces of pottery and various stones found near two caves on the way to the fort from the western entrance have been clinching evidences of existence of Neolithic civilisation.

The two caves were found on either side of the path.
