Jharkhand was carved out of the southern part of Bihar on 15 November 2000. Jharkhand shares its border with the states of Bihar to the north, Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh to the west, Orissa to the south, and West Bengal to the east. The industrial city of Ranchi is capital of Jharkhand and Dumka is sub capital while Jamshedpur is the largest and the biggest industrial city of the state.

There are abundance of fossil remains and prehistoric artifacts in some places of Jharkhand point to the possibility that the transformation of homo erectus to homo sap/ens took place in the Chotanagpur region. Stone axes and other tools of early civilizations date back to over 3000 years. In the 6th or 7th century BC - the era of the epic Mahabharata-the "Kikat" Pradesh mentioned in the Rig Veda,was located somewhere in the Parasnath Hills in Giridih district, Jharkhand.

Art historians ascribe the 'oldest cave paintings' in India, the "scroll paintings" to a Jharkhand tribe known as the Shabars.
10,000 to 30,000 years old rock paintings, paintings in huge caves in the Sati hills and other indicators of ancient, even pre-historic, human settlements are found in profusion.
