A new web site http://tamilartsacademy.com/home.asp has been added in the 'must-be-read' section.
Created by Dr Nagaswamy, former Director of Archaeology of Tamilnadu, this link contains brilliant articles
on archaeology, epigraphy, numismatics and vedic/hindu civilization.
Some of the topics covered by him have already been discussed by me in this blog.
I wish more research happens on the lines noted in the posts.
