Abstract

The area on the western edge of the district is culturally rich and it is investigated by various historians and archaeologists for a long time. The current study focusses to analyze the effects of Darawat Dam construction on the archeological sites due to the merging of the Mole, Desai, and Baran Nian. The researcher conducted a field survey and used the Global Positioning System (GPS) to unexpose the archeologist sites around the dam and discover fresh archeological sites also. The cultural material found on the surface was analyzed to find out the accurate date and time depth of the sites. During the survey and analysis of the material, it was found that 27 archaeological sites have been badly affected due to the construction of the dam and some of these will be extinct. The study suggests the local authority or Government organizations protect these archeological sites scientifically.
