Vasavasamudram 

Vasavasamudram is a coastal village in Kanchipuram district and lies eleven miles south  of Mamallapuram, and north of Vayalur, another historic site. The exploration revealed conical jars and neck of an amphorae and proves the fact that this site had trade contacts with Rome during 1st and 2nd century CE.

In the excavation two ring wells were exposed. Both the ring wells were found close to each other. These two ring wells were also very close to a brick lined tank, which was probably used for dyeing or washing. The important potteries found at Vasavasamudram were rouletted ware, amphorae, red ware, red slipped ware, black slipped ware and brown ware etc.
