Palaeolithic culture: About ten lakh years ago humans were evolved from early members of the genus Homo such as Homo habilis. In the early days he used to stay on top of the trees and used to roam near the rivers and the valleys. Due to the ability of thought and understanding he used the stones found in the rivers to make useful tools. The Paleolithic is characterized by the use of knapped stone tools, although at the time humans also used wood and bone tools. Other organic commodities were adapted for use as tools, including leather and vegetable fibers; however, due their nature, these have not been preserved to any great degree. Surviving artifacts of the Paleolithic era are known as Paleoliths.
During Upper Paleolithic period he was more advanced. He became expert in designing new tools. He started cultivation and because of which he preferred to stay at a particular place. He also learned how to cook food and tame animals. In his free time he also started drawing and painting.
The ancient tools displayed here were collected near the banks of Chambal River in Bhanpura. The tools include chopper, hand axe, scraper, spear, etc.
