Archaeologists claim to have unearthed a settlement that is believed to be about 3,150 years old in Balangoda. News 1st’s reporter in the area visited the expedition.

The expedition discovered, what they say, are the remains of this settlement at a dig in the Tanketiya jungle in Kalthota, Balangoda.

Professor of Post Graduate Archaeology at the University of Kelaniya, Raj Somadeva, who is leading the expedition, says the remains they have found indicate that they once made up a oval-shaped house.
Among the items discovered by the expedition are an iron ring, a grinding stone and a rock carving.
