In recent decades, the vast and culturally diverse Indian Ocean region has increasingly attracted the attention of anthropologists, historians, political scientists, sociologists, and other researchers. Largely missing from this growing body of scholarship, however, are significant contributions by archaeologists and consciously interdisciplinary approaches to studying the region’s past and present.
“The contributors do a superb job of situating the Indian Ocean within the most current discourses of historical archaeology, including, importantly, ways of broadening the field. The subject of the book is truly original and it makes a significant contribution to knowledge by its very presence.”
Charles E. Orser, author of Historical Archaeology
