Abstract: Megalithic monuments are found all over the Indian subcontinent, though the vast majority of these are distributed in peninsular India, with sparser distribution in the north (Moorti 1994, 2008; Brubaker 2001). Though generally ascribed to the south Indian Iron Age (Moorti 1994, 2008; Sundara 1975), their origins could well go back to the Neolithic, and megalith construction might have lasted into the Early Historic period (Morrison 2005, 2009, Menon 2012a, 2012b).
