The concept of Prof. Anura Manatunga, the current Director General of Archeology, paved the way for the publication of an online lecture series called 'Pura-Hour' on the information uncovered by the Archaeological Department officials during their research journey from the present to the past.
This program was inaugurated on 04th March 2021 at the Auditorium of the Department of Archeology under the patronage of Hon. Vidura Wickramanayake, Minister of State for the Promotion of National Heritage, Performing Arts and Rural Artists.
