The history of the Godda Region dates back to the Stone Age. Numerous stone tools have been found in the region including hammers, axes, arrow keys, agricultural implements etc., especially in Santhal Pargana. Godda was part of the separatist Santhal Pargana region until the 1981 census. Later a small part of the Godda of Santhal Pargana was divided and established as a new district. As a result of the Santhal revolt of 1845-55 the Santhal Paragna region was formed from parts of Bhagalpur and Birbhum.
