The Rich History of Malay Seals and Maritime Southeast Asia

The Rich History of Malay Seals and Maritime Southeast Asia

Seals offer us a window into the past, even if to some of us they seem largely unimportant compared to the document that it accompanies. For maritime Southeast Asia, Malay seals contain a treasure trove of data through which we can learn so much about the history of the Malay world. Joining us on the show today is Dato’ Dr Annabel Teh Gallop, to share more about her work researching and collecting over 2,000 seals for her book, Malay Seals from the Islamic World of Southeast Asia. She is currently the Lead Curator of the Southeast Asia section at the British Library, and in 2022 she received the Merdeka Award for “Outstanding Contribution to the People of Malaysia”.
