Sri Lanka History


This little island has a rich history that flows from the beginning of time.

Its most recent history from the Colonial period is made up from encounters with the British for the most part, going back to the Dutch East India Company and the Portuguese. The French and Spanish too have had their contributions to the history books during their exploits.

During the middle ages, Sri Lanka being located along the silk route and abutting a major shipping route by geographic location, has seen Arabs to Persians to Romans creating history.

Sri Lanka’s history and golden era is documented in the Mahavamsa going back 2500 years into a past of astounding achievements of a civilisation that was advance in every sense of the word.

Going back further, Sri Lanka is mentioned in several mythological stories which are preserved it the culture of its people.

Pre-history in Sri Lanka is equally rich with many discoveries that would put human inhabitation amongst some of the oldest to be discovered in the world. These discoveries demonstrate that pre-historic civilisation had been relatively advance, which is truly fascinating to the history enthusiast.
