1.1 Pre-historic India

1.2 Hunter and gatherers of the Historical Period

The hunter and gatherers using microlithic tools continued to live in the later period, even after the development of the Neolithic, Iron Age, and historical periods.

Perhaps they became part of the marginalized communities when the people who lived in the cities acquired more wealth. Some of the people who live in the forests even today in some remote areas and also in the Andaman region could be considered as those people who prefer to live by hunting and gathering.

Many such groups lived in the 19th and 20th centuries, as recorded in Edgar Thurston’s Castes and Tribes of Southern India. Describing them as primitive is incorrect.

They should be considered as people who preferred to live by hunting and gathering. When the Indus Civilisation was at its peak, Tamil Nadu had microlithic hunter-gatherers. The Andhra Karnataka region had the agro-pastoralists of the Neolithic period.
