Karur 

Karur is situated about 70 km from Tiruchirappalli  town and  is a District headquarters. The excavation results have thrown valuable light on the identification of this place  as an important  trade centre.

The important findings are several potsherds with Tamil-Brahmi inscriptions assignable to the beginning of the Common  era. The inscribed potsherds were found along with Roman Amphorae and rouletted ware of Mediterranean origin.
