Abstract
 
Description
Southeast Asia has been the hub of a prosperous maritime trade for many centuries. Just about every type of exotic merchandise was trade here--porcelain, gold, silver and the precious spices for which the region was renowned. This book weaves a fascinating story of the rich trading history of the Spice Route and of the thousands of ships that came here in search of riches. It explores some of the reasons why the ships sank and provides an eye-opening account of the fabulous treasures that still lie undisturbed beneath the waters of Southeast Asia. - from Amzon
