This collection of nine essays brings to light new facets of Singapore history and illuminates more familiar aspects with novel perspectives. Singapore’s pre-colonial history is brought to life in this generously illustrated volume, which combines an analysis of archaeological artefacts, writings and maps with original arguments for Singapore’s importance in regional history before Sir Stamford Raffles arrived. Written by authorities in the field and accompanied by visual productions of artefacts excavated over the last two decades, this collection will be compelling reading for the casual reader looking for an introduction to Singapore’s pre-colonial history as well as those looking for incisive, insightful viewpoints on Singapore before Raffles.
