Hathnora is a village in the Narmada Valley in central India where archaeologist Soniaka of the Geological Survey of India found remains of what he believed came from a Homo erectus 600,000 to 700,000 years old. The remains seemed to belong to a woman in her thirties who Sonakia called Homo erectus narmadensis. However, other scientists such as Sankhyan and Kennedy suspect that this is an archaic Homo sapiens. Acheuléen tools and remains of proboscis and hollow horns have also been found here.

In 1997, Sankhyan found remains of, among other things, a hominid collarbone and tools from the middle or late Palaeolithic.
