The University of Hawai’i Press has published a new book by Dr. Natali Pearson that looks at the past and present of the Belitung shipwreck from her initial discovery through the fascinating, convoluted history of the questions it has raised amongst marine archaeologists, governments, collectors, museums and international organisations ever since. A short summary of Belitung: The Afterlives of a Shipwreck can be found here and a half-hour interview with Dr. Pearson here. SEACS members will be pleased to learn that Dr. Pearson will be our April programme speaker on Saturday 29 April. Invitations and notices will be sent to all members prior to the event.
