Synopsis The excavations at the Proto-Historic site. Paidigutta, were taken up to trace the cultural sequence belonging to the Neolithic-Chalcolithic, Megalithic and early historic periods and to find its relation with the one found in its middle reaches and the nearby sites just away from the confluence. Though early historic period data is not found at Paidigutta, that data is found at Chagaturu, a site developed as an independent site but few meters away from Paidigutta.
