Ethnoarchaeological perspectives of prehistoric settlement patterns of South-Central Ganga Valley. Published 2011 by Archaeopress in Oxford, England.

Publication Year: 2011. BOOK DESCRIPTION Despite the early beginnings of agriculture in the Ganga plains and the Belan valley, the hunting-gathering way of life has not completely disappeared from the region. Communities like the Musahars live almost entirely by small-game hunting and gathering, whereas others like the Kols combine hunting-gathering with some agriculture, and the Mallah with fishing and agriculture.

The archaeological site of Tol-e Pir is situated in the Galehdār Valley, in the south of Fars Province. The site was discovered by Sir M. Aurel Stein in 1933 and is the only prehistoric mound on or adjacent to the Iranian coast of the Persian Gulf that has been excavated. This paper looks at the pace and nature of change in prehistoric ceramic technology and decorative style to investigate the relationships between processes of culture change, innovation and transmission.

Ethnoarchaeological studies of South Asian tribal populations have focused on general patterns of subsistence and settlement. Scholars have noted the broad knowledge that members of these groups have of their natural environments (Murty 1981), and that most groups traditionally exploited a very wide range of plant and animal resources (Murty 1981, Nagar 1985, Raju 1988). It has also been observed that the extant groups were traditionally mobile (though many are now sedentary), with a settlement system responsive to the seasonal availability of food and water (Paddayya 1982).

Despite the early beginnings of agriculture in the Ganga plains and the Belan valley, the hunting-gathering way of life has not completely disappeared from the region. Communities like the Musahars live almost entirely by small-game hunting and gathering, whereas others like the Kols combine hunting-gathering with some agriculture, and the Mallah with fishing and agriculture. All three of these communities live a partly nomadic and partly sedentary life and raise several kinds of settlements ranging from temporary ones lasting only a few weeks to permanent ones lasting for many years. In the present study the author reconstructs the lifeways of the past inhabitants of this region though the study of the settlements of the three contemporary simple communities. The author places a particular emphasis on the relationship between subsistence practices, economic activities and mode of the disposal of the dead. The inhabited and abandoned residences and other structures of these three communities have been studied in detail; topics such as form, function, construction materials and techniques, disposal of cultural refuse, and location of burial and cremation grounds, are investigated. The author compares the contemporary settlements with the excavated settlements of Mesolithic and Neolithic-Chalcolithic cultures of the Ganga valley and identifies considerable similarities. The author argues that the settlements of the living communities provide useful insights for reconstructing past settlements.
