Tamils had a written form of language 2500 years ago. They also knew to inscribe it in their everyday items. the fact that it was not only precious items but common household items, implying the fact that commoners were literate. Animal bones were found, more than half of them were of bull, cow, and goat. They were domesticated and used for farming activities. 80% sand and lime were used in the building materials, and lime used had a high concentration of more than 97% calcium carbonate. “It stood the test of times” has got some real meaning here.
