A talk in India by Assistant Professor of Anthropology Shinu Abraham, on archeological research in Kerala, India, indicates that "a new appraisal of the State's ancient history" may be written, according to an account in one of two newspapers that covered the lecture.

Stories about Abraham's talk, "Chiefdom, Kingdom, or State? Looking Outside India to understand Ancient Kerala," at a history colloquium organized by the Kerala Council for Historical Research appeared in both The Hindu, India's national newspaper, and The New Wind Press.

Kerala is a state on the tropical Malabar Coast of southwestern India. Abraham's talk examined how archeological methods used in researching civilizations such as the ancient Mayans, if used for researching Kerala, could yield new information about social complexities of the area's ancient history.
