The Glazed Pottery: Asian and Islamic Imports

Zhang, Ran (2022) 'The Glazed Pottery: Asian and Islamic Imports.', in Archaeological Investigations of the Maldives in the Medieval Islamic Period: Ibn Battuta’s Island. London: Routledge. British Institute in Eastern Africa Monographs.

Abstract

This chapter presents the ~ 450 glazed ceramics excavated at Kinolhas, which include Chinese and southeast Asian material dated from between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries and a smaller group of material originating in the Islamic world, with a wide range spanning the ninth to the eighteenth centuries. The assemblage is compared to that recovered from over 100 archaeological sites of the broader western Indian Ocean. Numbers of Chinese ceramic finds at Kinolhas were overall rather higher than at many of those other sites, and the networks in which the Maldives were involved are discussed, as are changes over time and the reality of the so-called ‘Ming Gap’.
