For the present we may only note (i) the special features of this flake culture, consisting predominantly of scrapers, points, and borers on any fine-grained material, (ii) its relationship to certain river deposits and factory sites on or near foothills, and (iii) its distribution over almost the whole of Peninsular India. Its maker, Middle Stone Age man, and his vegetational environment are unkown, though we do have a faint idea of the contemporary fauna.
