 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Some Aspects of South Indian Shipping is a monograph on South Indian boats and new interpretations of archaeological data on the maritime contacts of the subcontinent. This monograph presents several chapters written by Dr. La Na Swamy on different aspects of South Indian shipping. It contains chapters on activity in art. These chapters provide a fresh interpretation of the latest data on the subcontinent’s maritime archaeology.

The documentation of South Indian boats is prepared by the author himself, who is engaged in this work since 1988. The boats are classified by their routes and building techniques and the routes include the Catamaran, the Canoes, the Sewn Boats, and Nailed Plank Built Boats. This monograph also contains a chapter on the Outrigger Boats of South India. With all this the present monograph provides a vast amount of data on vanishing maritime traditions of South India.

It is hoped that this monograph will prove to be a valuable new addition to the current literature on South Indian Maritime Heritage and will lead to better understanding and deeper probes in this field.
