Hunasagi, a village located in the Shorapur taluk of the district of Yadgir, is an important place in the state of Karnataka. Hunasagi is most visited for its many excavation sites that led to the findings of scores of early Palaeolithic evidences. Located 48 km to the southwestern precincts of the district’s headquarters, Yadgir and approximately 20 km from Shorapur--Hunasagi’s nearest railhead is at Yadgir.
At one of the late Old Stone Age sites excavated at Hunasagi, officials had come across weapons and stone tools made from a reddish brown chert. Many of these tools included longish blades with sharp edges and a host of other multi-purpose instruments. They were probably used for all types of activities—which further suggested that the site was amongst the popular and more inhabited habitation-cum factory sites. Close by, there were many other similar sites which were probably the manufacturing places of these tools and equipments. Local limestone was used for manufacturing most of these tools. A must visit for students, history enthusiasts and researchers alike.
