The prehistoric site of Chaklapunji tea garden, near Chandirmazar of Chunarughat (Chunarughat Upazila). Habiganj has also revealed a significant number of prehistoric tools from the bed of a small ephemeral stream (water remains here only for a few hours after rainfall) known as Balu nadi (river). Angularity and freshness of the fossil wood artifacts suggest that they did not come from a great

distance and probably came from nearby hillocks. Typologically, technologically, and morphometrically, the artifacts are more or less the same as those found in the Lalmai area. The Fossil wood assemblages of Lalmai and Chaklapunji can be classified into two groups: # Pre-neolithic assemblages without polished tools (hand axes, cleavers, scrapers, chopping tools, points etc.); # Neolithic assemblages (hand adzes, polished Celts, awls etc.).
