Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

One part contains the online exhibition of 7 wrecks, 'Discovering Asia's ceramic development over half a millennium - through shipwrecks of the 14th to 19th centuries' (part of the exhibition 'Maritime archaeology Malaysia' which opened in November 2001 at Muzium Negara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia). The website also includes all the content of an article by Sten Sjostrand and Claire Barnes, 'Turiang: a fourteenth century Chinese shipwreck, upsetting Southeast Asian ceramic history,' that has been published in: Journal of the Malaysian Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society, Vol LXXIV part 1 (no. 280), 2001, p. 71-109. Topic pages are supplementary to the principal sections of the site: the Chronology provides an overview of Asian maritime trade up to 1700, drawing on historical sources from many countries and new archaeological evidence. 'Malaysia at the crossroads' explains the wealth of historic shipwrecks around the country. - ma."
