History reveals itself in bits and pieces, though nature ensures that the puzzle is never complete. One such bit of history was found by amateur historians from Telangana. They claim to have unearthed a megalithic burial site, including a menhir in Madaram village between Suryapet and Kodad.


They say it is always exciting to find such things about human habitations as they help one in understanding the nature of civilization and culture that existed at that time in the region. S Haragopal, Muralikrishna, and Mahesh, who found the site say that it is dateable to the megalithic period.


Interestingly, the 15-foot high conical menhir discovered in a raised area has a petroglyph incised into it. They say that they were led to the site by local villagers and share that there were burial circles and relics scattered over 15 acres of land. However, since more land is now being used for agriculture, they rue that a part of history is being lost.


Another issue is that the location is beside the road, and the historians feel it could be taken over for development. In the past, a group member Karunakar discovered a Neolithic stone axe and a hundred holes in the bedrock in the vicinity of menhir.


However, this is not the first time that megalithic sites with menhirs, stone circles, and other funerary structures were discovered in different parts of Telangana.
