Bones of wild animals dating back to the Mesolithic period (2550-2185 BCE) have been excavated from sites in Lānghnaj. These include a canid (probably wolf), mongoose, rhinoceros, wild boar, chital, hog deer, swamp deer, nilgai and blackbuck. The presence of wild cattle has also been suggested. The animals bones at Lānghnaj suggest that the area was covered by a combination of savannah and forest with interspersed wetlands. Seven human skeletons and large number of microliths were also recovered.
Initial excavation and investigation at Lānghnaj was in 1944-63 and was conducted at Andhario Timbo or Ravalian no Timbo by Department of Environmental Archeology, University of London and Deccan college Post graduate & Research Institute of Pune.
