AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I thought Batavia was the story I was carrying on my trip to the Abrolhos in the first weeks of spring. You know the one - the Dutch East India Company ship that ran aground there in 1629, delivering 316 people to a cluster of tiny islands in the northern part of the archipelago where some endured a murderously mutinous attack at the hands of their fellow travellers. Only 116 arrived safely in the Spice Islands, half a year later.' (Publication abstract)
