Asian States, Asian Bankers: Central Banking in Southeast Asia
Singapore University Press, 2003 - Social Science - 215 pages
Earthenware is the most important material in Southeast Asian archaeology, yet there has been little published work aimed at understanding and dating earthenware artifacts and materials on a regional basis. This volume draws together essays from Southeast Asia's top archaeologists, and includes contributions from every country in the region. In addition to providing a base-line of information on what is known of earthenware across the region, strong analytical work here yields new understandings of the origins of the prehistoric tripod vessels of the Malayan Peninsula, and the role of earthenware from a kiln site in southern Thailand in the regional trade of the eleventh to fourteenth centuries, among other subjects.
