Description

There are more than 500 inscriptions belonging to the 8th, 9th and 10th centuries A.D. Out of these 115 inscriptions from the time of Adipada – Kitakbo up to King Kassapa V have been published in Inscription of Ceylon Vol V, Part 1. The Part II of the same volume we added another 74 Inscription in the era of King Dappula IV to King Mahinda V, the last King of Anuradhapura. Most of these inscriptions are not published by the department or any other institution up to date. Most of these inscriptions are discovered during the time of Mr. H.C. P. Bell, the first Commissioner of the Archaeological Survey in Sri Lanka. We expect to publish the remaining inscriptions in Inscription of Ceylon Vol. V.

Presently it is very rare and difficulty to find scholars, who are capable of reading, editing and interpreting these ancient inscriptions. I am grateful to Professor Sirimal Ranawella for agreeing to undertake this important publication, which he has completed successfully. I am very happy to present this publication to the scholars who are eagerly waiting for it.
