Based on the contents of 2nd Century B.C. inscriptions, 5th Century A.D. copper leaf grants found from Kalinga country and 12th Century inscriptions in Sri Lanka, it is proven that the legend of King Sinhabahu the father of the first king of Sinhalese, Vijaya is not a mythical story. Sinhapura from where King Vijaya departed from India to colonize Sri Lanka, is identified as had being located at Singupuram village in the east coast of India. Matching the recent Prehistoric, Protohistoric archeological findings with the anthropological, genetic and anatomical discoveries it is described that the Yakkas (Daemons) mentioned in the Mahawansa, the ancient chronicle of the Sinhalease were the ancestors of Vadda tribes, who inhabited the length and breadth of the island. Based on the same scientific findings it is argued that the Sinhala race sprang from an intermingle between the advanced segments of these indigenous Vadda tribes, who had reached the iron age by the 4th – 5th Century B.C. and the Vijayan wave of East Indian migrants. This book which is based on scientific archeological, anthropological, genetic and anatomical findings, not only explains the historicity of the “mythical” stories in the ancient chronicles of Sri Lanka, but also shed a light on the early history of the island.
