A Journey Through the Mergui Archipelago
By Jacques Ivanoff and Thierry Lejard
The Mergui Archipelago Project made five expeditions between 1998 and 2001. They resulted in the rediscovery of one of the most beautiful places on earth which had been isolated for many years. A cooperative and scientific project had been set up to promote the local heritage, nomad culture and the Burmese historical and cultural inheritance. The reader will discover ancient rock paintings, the archaeological landmarks of the Indian world on its way to Southeast Asia, the colorful history of the region since the first arrival of Westerners; he will also share the Moken nomads way of life.
