|Title:||Earthenware in Southeast Asia||Authors:||John N. Miksic||Issue Date:||2003||Publisher:||NUS Press||Citation:||John N. Miksic (2003). Earthenware in Southeast Asia : 370. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||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. A framework for understanding earthenware would help enormously in creating a more nuanced image of the cultural history of pre- and early historic Southeast Asia. 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 baseline 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 11th to 14th centuries, among other subjects. Though we are still some way from being able to write a textbook on the earthenware of Southeast Asia, this volume is an important step towards such a synthesis. It is fully illustrated with diagrams, photographs, illustrations and maps.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/151290||ISBN:||9789971692716|
