Connecting Continents addresses two important issues: how best to promote collaborative research on the Indian Ocean world, and how to shape the research agenda for a region that has only recently begun to attract serious interest from historical archaeologists.
“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
