Kadiyala Venkateshvara Rao, a freelance archaeologist, discovered evidence on the proto historic and early historic man and his activities in the north coastal Andhra Pradesh.
The site known for the Jaina vestiges also yielded megalithic (Iron age) habitation that further lead to the occupation by the Buddhists for the monastic operations. Archeological Department director, Prof. P. Chenna Reddy said the iron chisels recovered from Sangamayya hill date back to the Iron Age.
This is the first time that iron age findings have been made in north costal Andhra.
