Abstract: Iron appears in India in a Chalcolithic context during opening centuries of 2nd millennium BCE without bringing about much change in material milieu. The efficacy of iron as an agent of change has been therefore questioned. The present paper examines the issue of technological innovation and pattern of its adaptation in the early cultures of India.
