On the first of a two part series, we highlighted the possible international relations built during the pre-historic period. The following is the second part of the series on a quest for clues on pre-historic life.
What was the transition or transformation that took place from the stone age to the great civilizations ?
This is a very blurry part in Sri Lankan pre-hstory.
Excavations have proved that it did not take place at once , but was a period where the most important transitions had taken place. Professor Somadeva brought to life a new theory on the certain markings on the cave walls.
He also believes that the flat surface rock with markings on it is a clear indicator of the calculation capabilities of the pre-historic man. The discovery in question made out of clay, depicts something that looks like the head of an animal.
The discovery baffled the research team as no such discovery was ever made in the history of Sri Lankan archaeology. The grain seeds and shell discovered from the cave bed give a better understanding on the eating patterns of the pre-historic man that live in this cave called Alugalge.
Researchers believe that Alugalge is located along the contour of transformation from the hunter-gatherer era to the great civilisations.
The objective of this research is to understand what behaviour did the pre-historic man let go and what did he include in to his life.
