‘The Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology (JIOA) is an Indian journal with an international perspective, dealing with the historical process through which cultures grew in the countries bordering the Indian Ocean from the Red Sea through the South China Sea; the process which joined them together and made them share each others’ achievements in science and technology, literature and philosophy, social norms and cultural ethos, trading practices and exchange rates, and many other items of human endeavors. The Indian Ocean, in my view, has developed its own unique civilizational personality moving though the lanes and bylanes of history, from prehistoric times through the present, and this process is continuing’.
The Journal is especially intended for scholars, researchers and students of Indian Ocean rim countries, many of whom may not be well informed on recent researches and advances in the field of Indian Ocean Archaeology. As the scope of research expands, it is hoped that enhancement of public awareness will make the researchers more involved in this branch of archaeology.
The Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology is published by the Center for Research and Training in History, Archaeology and Palaeo-environment (CRTHP), an integral part of the Indian Archaeological Society. CRTHAP strives to support enquiries into the Indian Ocean past. CRTHAP initiated a field project within the Indian Ocean Archaeology framework in 2002, conducting excavations at the ancient port sites of Kamrej and Sanjan on the western coast of India. The first issue of the Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology carried the preliminary reports from these excavations.
