Paths Of Origins: The Austronesian Heritage In The Collections Of The National Museum Of The Philippines, The Museum Nasional Of Indonesia, And The Netherlands Rijksmuseum Voor Volkenkunde . Much has transformed our understanding of Southeast Asian prehistory in the last 40 years. The history and ties that bind the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Madagascar, the Pacific islands, and mainland Southeast Asia can now be traced to the big bang out of a homeland in Taiwan some 4,500 years ago. While archaeology had previously established irrefutable connections among peoples of these regions, more recent advances in historical linguistics and molecular genetics have provided an approximate timeline for the rapid dispersion of what archaeologists describe as colonizing farmers. This publication will focus on art and artefacts, features that stand witness to these peoples' relatedness today. With bibliography and index.
