Most of the time Selvi's little village of peanut farmers lies forgotten. But once a year it springs to life – when the archaeologists come to excavate the river-bed for tools of prehistoric ancestors. These ancestors were hominids who lived more than half a million years ago, and their stone tools are what the villagers call chakka kal, meaning 'shining stones'. Superimposing facts and photographs with illustrations and stories, the archaeologist-author brings to life a distant past and initiates young children into the fascinating world of archaeology.
