Drawing the significance of previous work at Ranyak Khen, a cave site with its antiquity extending to the mid-Holocene situated below Mimi, a small village in Kiphire District, Nagaland, the present season's work concentrates around two cave sites and a rock shelter around the Mimi region close to the Indo-Myanmar border to further understand the culture and adaptation pattern, subsistence strategies and the mobility pattern of these early hunter-gatherer communities of the region and draw its significance vis-a-vis the prehistory of Northeast India.
