Title Review

Located on the extensive coast of the Bay of Bengal, Odisha: ancient Kalinga, is known to have made a remarkable contribution to India’s transoceanic commerce, and, consequently, to its maritime prosperity. The seamanship and the navigation skills developed in the coastal regions of Odisha were, perhaps, among the earliest in ancient India. Venturing out into the fierce seas, its sailors and merchants carried out not only trade to far off countries, but their culture as well. This book is an attempt to trace, in a historical perspective, the ancient Odisha’s maritime trade and commerce contacts with Sri Lanka and the islands of Indonesia, like Bali, Sumatra, and Borneo. These apart, the author offers a study of ancient Odisha’s maritime activities, its ports and port towns – on the basis of foreign accounts.

Dr Benudhar Patra teaches history at the Post Graduate Government College, Chandigarh.
