Ancient people of Sri Lanka

December 5, 2009

The ancient inhabitants of    Sri Lanka  were called Veddhas.They lived  in caves  in the forest.They did not farm but lived by hunting animals and collecting fruit and honey from the forest.

They lived  in  small groups.They had their own customs and  traditions.They selected the oldest member  of  the community as their chief.All the others respected and obeyed him.

Uruwarige Tissahamy was a famous Vaddha chief.  visit our e-village
