The East is Calling: Trade and Exchange of Ceramics in Southeast Asia (AD 1400s-1800s)

Chen Sian Lim (UCL/Nalanda-Sriwijaya Centre, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore) will give a lecture organised by the Ceramic Technology Research Network at the Institute on 10 December.

The presentation entitled 'The East is Calling: Trade and Exchange of Ceramics in Southeast Asia (AD 1400s-1800s)' explores the ceramic finds from three historical port settlements of Temasek (Singapore), Melaka (Malaya), and Banten (Java), as well as ceramic cargoes from shipwrecks over the past 500 years, spanning pre-modern Southeast Asia prior to European contact, through the advent of the East India companies, and the age of colonization.

All staff and students are welcome. Mince pies and mulled wine will be served!

The Ceramic Technology Network brings together Institute of Archaeology staff and early stage researchers interested in the study of ancient ceramic technology. The purpose of the network is to organise focused group activities that cross-cut the wide chronological and geographic coverage of UCL archaeological ceramics research.

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Patrick Quinn.
