Pattanam - Archaeological Research Fraud with Oxford and other International Universities.

Kodungallur   has been the focal point of Kerala Churches which has been spreading St.Thomas Hoax myths, of the so called Apostle landing in Cranganore as is called. But Archaeological excavations proved the total area was under Sea till early 9th century by ASI, by world renowned Archaelogist.                                                                                               Enter -KCHR Church supported Marxist Historians with absolutely no Archaelogical background and select  a site NOT Far from Kodungallur - which was under sea, and from Ground level pits with in a space of 600 x 400 Meters they claim extracting more than 1,29,000 artifacts. They are dated to a age difference of 2000 years from 10th Cen BCE to 10th Cen CE, all the pits of same level, and not a single house like building or street and town - nothing is found.                                                                                  Pattanam wiki says -  According to the recent archaeological excavations,   Pattanam seems to have been first occupied by an indigenous population around 1000 BC and continued to be active till the 10th century AD. Some archaeologists identify it as the ancient Muziris.

Excavations  - Pattanam   here   says The site at Pattanam covers approximately 1.5 sq. km and the core area measures about 600 x 400 m
With in an area of this size and Pits of same size and depth gives more than 129,000 artefacts  a varying of period 2000 years  difference, from 10th Cen BCE to 10th Century CE.

Archaeological Survy of INDIA.  
KODUNGALLUR WAS UNDER SEA Till Early 9TH Century CE.

ASI Excavated Kodungallur in 1947, under P.Anujan Achan  and found articles of 14th century or later only. KERALA CHURCHMEN AND POLITCIANS put on pressure showing the above referred Copper plate and wanted ASI do more detailed Survey  Archaeological Survey of India under Highly Reputed Archaeologists Dr.K.V.Raman went for excavation , K.V.Raman and K.V.Saundararajan (1969-70). Archaeological sites such as  
Cheraman Parambu 
Thiruvanchikulam 
 Karuppadanna 
Mathilakam 
 Kilatali 
  Thrikkulasekharapuram etc.,  provided cultural remains of iron and copper tools, glass beads, semi precious stones, ceramics of dull red ware, celadon ware roof tiles, earthen lamps and coins. They are all dated between 900-1100 A.D...   

Dr.K.V.Raman wrote a book on his excavations in Tamil and has given details about Kodungallur excavations in each of his locations and all locations in and around Kodungallore (Cranganore) had same type and that Human Habitation took place in Later chera period in 9th Century CE Only and this is uniformly found in all locations.

At Thiruvananthapuram- Joint Annual Conference of Indian Archaeological Society (ACIAS), Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies (ISPQS), and Indian History and Culture Society (IHCS). Strongly criticising the archaeological excavations at Pattanam site in Kerala and the rambling hotchpotch of cultural remains without periodisation especially of pottery, veteran Archaeologist and former Director of Archaeology and Museums, Karnataka, A Sundara’s strong criticism came after the Kerala Council for Historical Research (henceforth KCHR) Director presented his paper on Pattanam excavations.
Professor PM Rajan Gurukkal, historian and one of the members of the MHP  also admitted that the site was unfit for any archaeological excavation as the soil has been virtually tampered for various construction purposes and digging of wells leaving no space for stratigraphical analysis of the cultural remains which have agglomerated."
Is this the way Western universities do their research? 
Absolutely unreliable KCHR, but to spread St.Thomas myth various Scholars from International Universities were involved, but no body has answered any querries on the sites, and the possibility of Planting those Artifacts at site.

WHAT HAS THOSE 129000 ARTIFACTS PROVE, NOT A CITY, TOWN, AND WHERE DOES ST.Thomas Hoax fables to do with?
ASI must Take over and Re-dig even the Existing Pits. The Artifacts could  be belonging to the period, but planted in the Pit or claimed to have been taken from the Pit, but the Pits of same Height and Topo can they give 2000 year different products.

ALL WESTERN UNIVERSITIES MUST CLARIFY.
