  1. Context: Findings from the study of 2 geo-archaeologists conducting research in India and China
  2. Early civilisations in both India and China were aware of seasonal change and understood and utilised the landscape around them accordingly
  3. There was evidence of pre-historic civilisations adapting to floods, dry spells as well as monsoons
  4. All the pre-historic sites around Alamgirpur (western UP) were located on the floodplains of an erstwhile tributary of the Yamuna
  5. The pre-historic people were clever enough to settle their site on a levee (natural embankment of rivers)
  6. So that they received the benefits of flood from the river, and at the same time, the site itself could not be affected by the floods
