Archaeology at Nevasa, Daimabad, and Inamgaon

Archaeology at Nevasa, Daimabad, and Inamgaon

(p.38) 3 Archaeology at Nevasa, Daimabad, and Inamgaon
Bioarchaeology and Climate Change

Clark Spencer Larsen

University Press of Florida

This chapter presents an overview of the archaeological record of three sites occupied during the Deccan Chalcolithic period (2200–700 B.C.) in India. It describes archaeological investigations at Nevasa, Daimabad, and Inamgaon, with particular attention to evidence for subsistence practices and mortuary treatment. The chapter also focuses specifically on evidence for culture change through time at Inamgaon, the only Deccan Chalcolithic site to yield an archaeological record and human skeletal material from the Late Jorwe phase, when most other sites had already been abandoned. The apparent success of adaptive diversity as a strategy for dealing with semi-arid monsoon climate uncertainty during the Early Jorwe phase is contrasted with the severe reductions in subsistence activity, shifts in species preferences, and evidence for culture change in the Late Jorwe phase.

Keywords:   archaeology, prehistory, Late Holocene, India, Nevasa, Daimabad, Inamgaon
