Glimpses of Nagas & Tamil in Eastern Sri Lanka


A steatite seal from a signet ring found in an early Iron Age burial in Anaikoddai, Jaffna. The seal contains both Brahmi and megalithic graffiti symbols arranged in a way that suggests that they may be a translation of each other. —

From the Compiler — “…Yet, the Government has appointed a Task Force for the management of archaeological remains in the Eastern Province, dominated by former military officials. I doubt that such a Task Force will help in the process of Reconciliation.
Further, many holding the steering wheel of the country are ignorant of the shared past of both the Hindus and Buddhists; I have compiled this Brochure with the intention of helping them to search their own hearts. I have fully reproduced the Preface to one of the books [in Tamil] by a contemporary of mine at the
University of Ceylon, Prof. S. Pathmanathan, along with selected pictures of archaeological monuments from Eastern Lanka, mainly, from his publications.”
