rewriting sri lanka history
The early part of the Mahawamsa dealing with the origin of the Sinhala race is probably a bag of bullshit. Vijaya, if he ever arrived in Lanka, with half shaven head, bansihed from hi sown country, is considered to be in the 6th cent. B.C.
the latest archeological excavations have unearthed a settlement with a house with a floor paved with stones, and with a canoe burial cemetry of their own. this shows is was an advanced civilization, around 1350 B.C. that is 700 years before vijaya.
these people are our ancestors, not the thug born out of an incestuous marriage
