Inscribed stone slab found in Sri Lanka

A 1,000-year-old inscribed stone slad has been found at the future site of a cricket stadium in Sri Lanka.

The inscribed stone slab has a large perforation at the centre reminding of anchors and sluice-gates.

Academics are concerned about the safe custody of the inscription with the Department of Archaeology.
