By Culturekiosque Staff

OXFORD, ENGLAND, 24 FEBRUARY 2010 — The School of Archaeology, University of Oxford, have announced that newly discovered archaeological sites in southern and northern India have revealed how people lived before and after the colossal Toba volcanic eruption 74,000 years ago. The international and multidisciplinary research team, led by Oxford University in collaboration with Indian institutions, has uncovered what it calls 'Pompeii-like excavations' beneath the Toba ash. 

Stone tools, plants and animal bones, among other artifacts of human occupation and environment in the two regions, have been the subject of a seven-year study.
