Two megalithic cist graves were exposed at Kalotuwawa (Sri Lanka). The cists showed traces of heavy burning and were filled with ashes, charcoal and a few calcinated human bones. Potsherds in the pits belonged to grave goods. The vessels were of Black-and-Red Ware and common Red/Brown Ware. Radiocarbon samples give a date of 135 ± 51 B. C.
