Palamu (Jharkhand), June 26(ANI): Artifacts dating back to the Harappan era have been unearthed in Kabra Kala village in Jharkhand's Palamu District.

Kabra Kala village is situated on a mound, and is spread over a radius of 600 to 700 meters.

"In this Kabra Kala village when we dig, different types of statues and rich minerals are found," said Ramji Kumar, a local.

Villagers said that full-scale excavation should be carried out in the village so that it could be developed as a tourist destination.

Meanwhile, officials said that the recovered articles belong to various ancient civilizations.

"Till now from Kabra Kala mound we have found an axe from the Neolithic Period, Bronze Age water utensils and Iron Age period furnace," said Tapas De, Songhati Archeological Council Secretary.
