Archaeology findings from Megalithic and Mesolithic Periods

The first stage of the excavation started at the Aanakkara site near Thirthala was done on Friday and the team of archaeologists left the site with findings dating right back to the Megalithic and Mesolithic periods. The second stage would further start in August and the district panchayat has committed all maintenance for the mission.

The area panchayat has also determined to take up the issue with the State and Central Governments, said Dr K P Shajan who was one of the members among the excavation team. “We hope to get some financial assistance from the Department of Culture at the Center for the next phase of excavation”, he added. The excavation is being carried out under the direction of the Director of the School of Social Sciences of the Mahatma Gandhi University Prof Rajan Gurukkal.
