About This Book

These 23 specialist papers set out and discuss the results of much recent archaeological and other scholarship which enables a clearer view of the South-Southeast Asia interchange which took place between 500 BCE and 1500 CE. Ten papers look at evidence indicating cross-Bay of Bengal influences in trade, ceramics, boat building, language and inscriptions. The 12 papers in Part 2 concern South Asia influences which became localised in Southeast Asia including Buddhist and Hindu buildings and ritual, sculpture, music, jewellery and decoration and in contested interpretations of history, for example in Laos and Cambodia. Separate bibliographies, and index.
