Researchers have found evidence of a ‘lost’ river that ran through the central Thar Desert, near Bikaner, as early as 1,72,000 years ago.

The evidence indicates a river flowed with phases of activity dating to approximately up to 172 thousand years ago, nearby to Bikaner, Rajasthan, which is over 200 kilometres away from the nearest modern river.

The findings published in the journal Quaternary Science Reviews represent the oldest directly dated phase of river activity at Nal Quarry in the central Thar Desert. The river would’ve offered a lifeline to Paleolithic populations, researchers said
