Thoothukudi: The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) unearthed last week a gold diadem from a huge burial urn while excavating the museum site at Adichanallur on 8 August. This is the second gold ornament found at Adichanallur in the recent excavation phase.
Excavations at the site had stopped about 2 years ago, which met with strongly criticised by Tamil people, especially politicians. They condemned the 'abandoning' of excavation at Keeladi, near Madurai, where a Sangam Age urban settlement had been discovered. The ASI recently began its excavations again at Adichanallur.
