My comments: Another 90 are yet to come. Even the first ninety people are enough to show, the Purushamedham was only symbolic. Even a cursory reading of the list will show that it did not happen anywhere. What they are trying to show is  that the people were all just limbs of one common body.

 

The list shoos that the Vedic Hindus were highly skilled and talk even about coronation. There was a monarchy to whom people were paying taxes. All these happened around 1000 BCE even according to the jaundice eyed foreign “scholars”!
