Product Description

This seminal book synthesizes 25 years of archaeological research to construct the fourteenth-century port of Singapore in greater detail than is possible for any other Southeast Asian City. Within its defensive wall, the city was well-organized and prosperous, with a cosmopolitan population that included residents from China, other parts of Southeast Asia, and the Indian Ocean. Fully illustrated with more than 300 maps and color photos, Singapore and the Silk Road of the Sea presents Singapore’s history in the context of Asia’s long-distance maritime trade in the years between 1300 and 1800; it amounts to a dramatic new understanding of Singapore’s Precolonial Past.
