Medieval Sri Lanka
During the 6th century AD
the ancient Veddah inhabitants on the island of Sri Lanka were conquered by Sinhalese
northern India. Sri Lanka was a well known island along the trans-Indian trade route,
growing in prosperity
as spices & precious stones gained value. On several occasions India
tried to capture this
wealthy island positioned just off their eastern coast. These
invasions led to the establishment of a Tamil
community on the island.
