Haour, Anne and Annalisa Christie (eds.) 2021. Archaeological Investigations of the Maldives in the Medieval Islamic Period: Ibn Battuta’s Island.
This book presents pioneering research on the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Maldives in the medieval period. Primarily archaeological, the book has an interdisciplinary slant, examining the material culture, history, and environment of the islands. It positions the archaeology of the Maldives in relation to the cowrie trade that traversed Africa in medieval times.

We are always keen to receive submissions for publication as part of the BIEA series. If you have an idea for a project that could make a BIEA memoir, in the first instance get in touch with the series editor, Stephanie Wynne-Jones. Publications are not restricted to projects that were supported directly by the BIEA and submissions from African colleagues are particularly welcomed.
