Ancient settlements unearthed in Sri Lanka





Archaeological excavations have unearthed remains of ancient human settlements in Vadamarachchi East area, Archaeology Director General, Dr. Senarath Dissanayake said.

"We have found evidence of three old human settlements in these areas. They have spread over an area covering nearly three kilometres and are vitally important to prove the historical background of Jaffna peninsula", he said...

... Archaeologists believe that Kandarodaya belongs to ironic age and there are sufficient evidence to suggest that these human settlements in Kandarodoi lead to the existence of a very old history in the peninsula", Dr. Dissanayake said. Wallipuram golden scroll provides vital facts to determine the history of Jaffna peninsula. According to archaeologists, this Wachipuram scroll belongs to the 2nd century.
