Caption: India docking with Asia. Computer artwork showing the changing position of India from 71 million years ago to the present day as it moved northwards and merged with the Asian landmass. This shows that up until around 10 million years ago India was an island. The Earth's crust is formed from a number of different tectonic plates of rock that 'float' on an underlying layer of molten rock known as the mantle. This means that the World's landmasses are continually moving, a process known as plate tectonics. A key to the timescale can be seen at bottom right.
