An archaeological site more than 3330 years old has been found in the Udaranchamadama area in Embilipitiya, Sri Lanka, by a group of local archaeologists.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror Online, the site had been discovered by Professor Raj Somadeva and his team while excavating an area belonging to the Sri Jayabodharama temple in Udaranchamadama.

The ruins of a cemetery had been found earlier in the Pahalaranchamadama school premises and this team believed that traces of the village that used the cemetery could be discovered from this excavation.
