The Bengal region has remnants of continuous human habitation from Palaeolithic to historic periods historic and linguistic evidences suggest that early settlers were speakers of Dravidian Tibeto Burman and Austro Asiatic languages with the Indo Aryan speakers coming later. Since the tenth century BC the kingdoms and janapadas have been governed by Buddhist Hindu and Muslim rulers. The British gained political power in the eighteenth century eventually Bengal became the epicentre of British rule in India.
