There have been few accessible studies of the pre-1819 period of Singapore, a time usually seen as a vacant era. These nine papers set out what is known. By using written material and recent archaeological discoveries, much light is shed on the 900 or so years before Stamford Raffles "founded" Singapore. This collation of evidence from maps, excavated ceramics and other artefacts, Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese and British trading and official records, travellers' tales, and other annals enables a clearer picture of the background of modern Singapore to emerge. With colour and b&w illustrations, annotations and index.
