Past issues of the Museum of Southeast Asia’s Newsletter (2004-2017)

The Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum Newsletter was launched in September 2004 by Dr. Roxanna Brown, who was the first director of the Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum as well as an active SEACS member. It promoted the dissemination of knowledge, news, and research on the ceramics both made and discovered in Southeast Asia. Its back issues remain an excellent resource on Southeast Asian ceramics, archaeology, history and museology. Over the years, many SEACS members contributed to its issues. This link will take you to its home page where you can download any or all of its back issues.
