The significance and importance of Butuan as a trading center as early as the 10th century C.E.

Globalization in Southeast Asia’s Early Age of Commerce and the Contributions of Maritime Archaeology (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lisa Niziolek. Amanda Respess. Gary Feinman. Laure Dussubieux.

Globalization has become a central concern of anthropology, and recently scholars have debated its definition, origins, and social implications.

It has become increasingly evident, based on a growing corpus of data, that...

DOCUMENT Citation Only Aviva Pollack.

This is a paper/report submission presented at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. Clay coffins found in burial contexts along the coasts of modern Israel, Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey are marked by resemblance in form, decoration, and fabric. The Galilee and Phoenician coast, religiously and culturally diverse, contained the majority of clay coffins, all dating between the 2nd and 4th centuries. Petrographic analysis confirms the importation of the coffins...

The Strategic Location of the Maldives in Indian Ocean Maritime Trade and Colonization (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Richard Callaghan.

The Maldives Islands, situated off the south west coast of India, form a chain trending from north 6.930° to south 0.700° latitude, an extent of approximately 850 km. The chain divides the Indian into east and west as well as marking the divide between the seasonal monsoon weather patterns. Present evidence suggests that the island chain was occupied as early as the 5th or 4th century BC with close ties to India. The islands became strongly culturally and commercially connected to both Asia and...
