This discovery is definitely amongst the strangest out there, dozens of petroglyphs appearing to be as old as tens of thousands of years old have now been discovered in India as a result of archaeologists specifically looking for these for a while now.
Many believe that these rare petroglyphs date as far back as 10,000 BC, but what’s even stranger is the drawings in themselves.
These are drawings of animals that are seen only in Africa as opposed to India which is where they were originally discovered, to begin with.
This sparked a lot of controversy with the experts, as they believe this is a sign of them being a nomad tribe that traveled from Africa to India in ancient times and they left these petroglyphs behind as a memo of the fact that they used to be here in the first place.
The fact of the matter is however that we do not know who could have drawn these petroglyphs in the first place. The few villages that knew of their existence also worshiped them because of how ancient they really are, to begin with.
Texas Garge, the head of the Maharashtra state archeology department, came out to issue a statement in which he cleared out the information by stating that they are at least dating back to 10,000 BC or so.
Originally discovered by Sudhir Risbood and Manoj Marathe, these petroglyphs were discovered in a total of 52 villages altogether, with only five of these having actually acknowledged their existence while the others didn’t know they existed in the first place.
