AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On India’s west coast, as far as south as you can go, bordered on the east by mountains and on the west by the Arabian sea, there’s Kerala.

'It’s a beautiful place, which has been connected to the world for centuries. There are two simple reasons for that: because its soils, peoples and climate grow spices so abundantly and because so many people so many places like spicy foods. By the time (around 1500 BCE) that the Austronesians built the first ocean-going ships to establish the hemispheric trade routes, Kerala had already been trading spices northwards for over a millennium. That’s a significant slice of history' (Introduction)
