ArtikelHN IIASFull title: New discoveries on Southeast Asia's maritime and diplomatic history 1600-1800

By Dr. Hendrik E. Niemeijer

(© H.E. Niemeijer, March 2015)


This article in the news letter of the 'International Institute of Asian Studies' (IIAS) Niemeijer talks about the website of www.sejarah-nusantara.anri.go.id and the archives of the Dutch Eastindia Company that are published digitally in a collaboration project between The Corts Foundation (TCF) and the Arsip Nasional Republik Indonesia (ANRI).

This website not only shows scans, but also secondary entries to these digitized archival series. In the entries already thousands of diplomatic letters were found that can provide a better understanding of the diplomatic relations between local rulers and the High Government of Batavia. This index of letters is online since the end of 2014 with a geographical visualization and eight relevant articles on individual letters.

The full edition of the news letter of IIAS is also available as PDF-download .
