Life in Andipatti and Modur during the megalithic periods

Andipatti, (now dont mistake this for Jayalalitha's Andipatti) in Tiruvannamalai district, 15 km from Chengam,TamilNadu, India was under the spade for quite sometime now. ASI has excavated a terracota bull, shell bangles, Mother Goddess figurines, pot shreds with graffiti marks and spindle whorls.

According to the Special Commissioner of Archaeology, T. S. Sridhar, the recent excavations have highlighted the material aspects of civilisation in this part of the country. There had been continuous settlement in Andipatti from the megalithic to the historic period.
