Images from the Gulf of Cambay, India

The artefacts in these images were dredged up in the Gulf of Cambay, off the North West coast of India, in operations conducted in November 2001. They are among thousands of other objects and artefacts recovered in the same locality, identified by India's National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) as the site of two flooded prehistoric cities. A piece of wood amongst the artifacts (photographs below) was carbon dated at two different laboratories - one giving a date of 8500 years ago and the other of 9500 years ago.

Possible carving representing the neck and head of a deer or other animal. The even, raised/grooved curve along the neck and head is striking in its appearance and appears symmetrically on both sides of the object, indicating not only human agency in its creation, but also that a high degree of skill was employed in its execution.
