This thread is specifically meant for Tamil Babe, but others are freee to answer.

I believe we were discussing the first settlers to SL. You seemed to point out the relative proximity of TN to the Jaffna Peninsula. But I don't think you can assess the racial demographics of two or three millenia ago by simply looking at a map.

My argument is the architecture that you find all over the North reflects long-term Buddhist settlement. There is no Hindu architecture, as far as I know, that even begins to come close to that of the Buddhist type. In South India, yes. But SL, no.

You also mentioned the fragility of theories. Well, you need some form of understanding, and so I look at the architecture/ruins.
