Wagon Massacre

A Wagon Massacre, Not Tragedy

As many as 70 anti-British agitators, mostly Muslims, locked up in a goods train and sent to Central Prison at Podannor near Coimbatore on November 19, 1921, were found dead in the wagon the next day. 

This is etched in Kerala anti-colonial struggle as the Wagon Tragedy.The quest for memory is the search for one’s history – Pierre Nora, French historian No one consciously creates a tragedy. However, whenever one does such a thing it should no more be called a tragedy.


 It is located adjacent to Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple at East Fort in Thiruvananthapuram.The palace was built by Maharaja Swathi Thirunal Balarama Varma - the King of Travancore, who was a great poet, musician, social reformer and statesman.

What is Archaeology
A subdiscipline of anthropology. Anthropology  is the study of humankind.Archaeology is the study of the human past through material remains.
Material remains are collectively referred to as the archaeological record. This includes artifacts (e.g., stone tools, ceramic vessels); features (e.g., housepits, hearths); and ecofacts (e.g., animal bones, plant remains).
Archaeologists have three main goals:
1-Reconstruct Culture History: understand the distribution of archaeological remains through time and space.
2-Reconstruct Past Lifeways: determine past behavior through material remains.
3-Explain the Process of Culture Change: understand how and why cultures change through time.
