The ancient culture of Tamils has always been a debate. Some claim that Tamil is the oldest of all languages and the oldest of the civilisation.
The Keeladi archaeological site, Athirampakkam site, Adichanallur site and many more archaeological sites unravelled the missing links of ancient Tamil culture.

The centre has restrained the Keeladi excavation site to further proceed with Amarnath Ramakrishnan who the first to find many artifacts from the excavation
There was a lot of controversies but his transfer was unavoidable.
The same way Adichanallur excavation also gave many human skeletons buried in urns dating back to 1800 BCE.

They have also ordered the director of Archaeological Survey of India to submit about all the excavation reports happening in TN and what is the budget allotted for the archaeological expedition in TN by the centre and the state?
