The volume encapsulates the results of ongoing research on different aspects of the Archaeology of the Indian Ocean: archaeobotany; ethno-archaeology; maritime ethnography and numismatics. These issues have been discussed within the wider Context of movements of communities across the Indian Ocean both Fishing and sailing communities, as also travellers and traders. A range of textual sources, including those in Greek and Arabic have been analysed, together with representations in cartography, the objective being to initiate interest in an holistic approach to early seafaring activity.
