KCHR Archaeological scandals comes more open -Kodungallur Not Muzuris

Prof . Dr. K.V.Raman who along with K.V.Saundararajan  and Shri N.G.Unnithan carried out excavations and found that Human habitation had taken place in and around Kodungallur only after 900 C.E.
But Why is Kodungallur confused with Sangam Muzuris- the answer is from Wiki which says it is from Copper plate.
It is frequently referred to as Muciri in Sangam poems, Muracippattanam in Sanskrit epic Ramayana, and as Muyirikkottu in a copper plate of an 11th-century Chera ruler.

Further to the pressure from various quarters 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 and Thrikkulasekharapuram 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. Virgin Soil without any Human habitation was found at levels of 9th Century C.E.

Archaeologists and Historians expose it as highly biased and no substance & KCHR Methodology

National Archaeological Meet-Prof MGS Asks KCHR to Hand Over Pattanam to ASI---P.J.Cherian Vehemently Criticized by Leading Archaeologists
 At  Thiruvananthapuram , on 11th November 2011 Prof MGS Narayanan in his presidential address at the Annual conference of the Indian Archaeological Society, Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies and Indian History and Culture Society  launched a scathing attack on Pattanam excavations and requested the Archaeological Survey of India to undertake the site.
Prof A.Sundara leading archaeologist from Karnataka pointed out that there are no major structural remains at the site. He  asked P.J.Cherian  to precisely record and  classify antiquities from each trench  rather than pooling them together and interpreting them. Prof. Sundara told Cherian that such approaches are not adopted in field archaeology since  cultural material from each trench has its validity. Prof .Sundara also pointed out that the claims of structural remains from Pattanam is questionable.
Dr. K.N.Dikshit former Joint Director General of Archaeological Survey of India and Secretary of Indian Archaeological Society questioned the claims of P.J.Cherian that Historical Period at Pattanam goes around 1000 BC. K.N. Dikshit asked Cherian to  be cautious and  review such claims since Historical Period in Peninsular India has not gone beyond 200-300BC 
Other archaeologists questioned Cherians claims of Pattanam as an urban site since nothing was seen in empty  trenches  when they visited Pattanam . To them Cherian told that he  has left the site and structures in the trenches were carried away by local people for which he is not responsible.When he was again asked to clear as to how residential areas, streets , warehouses and wharfs  can be carried away by people Cherian was silent and stood isolated.
The entire archaeological community from all over India numbering 200 and represented by the three societies applauded the suggestions put forward by MGS. Narayanan.Dr. K.N.Dikshit, fSecretary of Indian Archaeological Society and former Deputy Director General of Archaeological Survey of India,  Dr. B.R.Mani, currently Additional Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India, Professor P.K.Thomas and Professor Pramod Joglekar of  Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies and Professor Vandana Kaushik and Professor Ashalatha Joshi of Indian History and Culture Society were present on the occasion.
The excavation at the Muziris heritage site should have been modelled after the Anuradhapura excavation project in Sri Lanka, K Krishnan, a faculty member of archaeology at the University of Baroda, said. The  department of archaeology was part of the of the excavation team at Anuradhapura, which was at present a UNESCO World Heritage site. Krishnan said that the importance of Muziris was shifting towards tourism from the archaeological importance of the findings.
KCHR has not come to any conclusion that Pattanam is Muziris. -    Prof K.N. Panikkar, chairman of KCHR

Pattanam and KCHR charged of Multiple Corruption Access on  November 21 2016 Rampant irregularities detected at KCHR By: Priyan R SNovember 4, 2016, 05:05 PM IST
Thiruvananthapuram: Rampant irregularities pointing to corruption were detected at the Kerala Council for Historical Research (KCHR) headquartered here.
It has emerged that the Director himself was involved in creation of fake government documents, illegal appointments and financial irregularities worth crores.
It is alleged that Director had obtained the licence for Pattanam excavation after submitting fake documents at the Archaeological Survey of India.
Since its establishment in 2001, General Council has not been convened even once. The General Council should include four MLAs, three Municipal Chairmen, six Panchayat Presidents, one district panchayat president and six social scientists.
The Executive Council exists for namesake and it is not being convened as per the rules. The AG report has clearly pointed at the financial irregularities detected in the institution since 2007. The Director has made six foreign visits without the government’s sanction.
Apart from this, building and land were brought without permission. The report also says that government money was deposited with different banks violating financial code and treasury code.
In addition to this, the institution which was functioning under the Cultural Department was later made under the Higher Education Department, allowing the Director to avail UGC pay scale while increasing the age threshold for his retirement.     
In a grave violation of rules, Cheriyan still continue to hold the post despite passing 60 years of age. This is happening in the absence of any government order.
Evidence proving that the Director does not have the qualification to order archaeological excavation AG's report on foreign tour conducted without government approval AG's report showing government fund deposited in other banks

 Dr. K.V.Raman published his experiences as book in Tamil as below.

Why is Kodungallur referred as Muziris - St,Thomas stories have been fabricated with the person landing in the port of Kodungallur in Ist Century, which is from a 19th century made up song Ramban pattu, St.Thomas building 71/2 Churches. All these places have been found below sea confirmed by the Christian book itself.
 History of Christianity in India, Vol. I, by Fr. A. Mathias Mundadan, Professor of Church History and Theology at the Dharmaram Pontifical Institute, Bangalore, in says  //Opinion seems to be Unanimously in supporting the Hypothesis that the whole or Greater part of the western section of the Kerala coast was once under waters and that the formation of the Land was due to some process of nature either gradual or Sudden.// Page-12 

Kodungallore Church are also called MALANKARA. What Does MALANKARA Mean?  The Tamil word correct form is Mal-Iyan Karai, which became Maliankara or Malankara. The Land formed By God Vishnu(Mal) and God Siva(Iyan).
Oldest source said is that Jewish copper plate issued has Muyuricode (Dated to 11th to 14th century). Research says thatwe really do not have original copper plate and in early 19th century Rev.Cladius Bu

 A Malayalam Book which was awarded as best History book in 1984 by Kerala History Association- Ernakulam in 1984. (The History of Christianity in the Spice Land- P.V.Matthew) as informed in his book “Acta Indica” -1986 confirms that the earlier copy had Mahodayakkad - which Rev.Claudius Buchanan altered assuming himself. 
In another copper plate -Rev.Claudius Buchanan altered Tamil Koduththoom as "Kodungallur"
In an effort to make that Forgery right - now Pattanam is been dug without any professional Archealogists and ASI  - which is well explained by BS Hari Shankar -Senior Archaeological Researcher  in his Article
