Rasheeda’s question
Rasheeda sat reading the newspaper. Suddenly, her eyesfell on a small headline: “One Hundred Years Ago.” How,she wondered, could anyone know what had happenedso many years ago?
Finding out what happened
Yesterday 
: you could listen to the radio, watchtelevision, read a newspaper.
Last year 
: ask somebody who remembers.
But what about long, long ago 
? Let us see how it can be done.
 What can we know about the past?
 There are several things we can find out — what people ate, the kinds of clothes they wore, thehouses in which they lived. We can find out about the lives of hunters, herders, farmers, rulers,merchants, priests, crafts persons, artists,musicians, and scientists. We can also find out about the games children played, the stories they heard, the plays they saw, the songs they sang.
 Where did people live?
Find the river Narmada on Map 1 (page 2).Peoplehave lived along the banks of this river for severalhundred thousand years. Some of the earliest people who lived here were skilled
gatherers 
,
— that is, people who gathered their food. They knew about the vast wealth of plants in the surroundingforests, and collectedroots, fruits and other forest produce for their food. They also
hunted 
animals.
