The Indian Council for Historic Research is all set to determine whether Ram Sethu is a man made structure. It would do so on its own as it has not approached the centre for funding the project. It is noteworthy to recall that NASA in 2002 has said that this is a man made structure.
A 2 weeks training involving 5-20 researchers and faculty on archaeology on marine and under water exploration will be a part of the pilot project.
This project is a part of ICHR’s initiative to understand the development of subcontinental civilisation from 4th to 1st millennium BC.
