Osmund Bopearachchi on the Godavaya Wreck and Ancient Graeco-Roman Trade in the Indian Ocean

Thuppahi's Blog

A  Note from Dennis McGilvray:

Dear Lankanists, ……………………..The positive response to my earlier email sharing the 2014 ARCHAEOLOGY magazine article about the ancient Godavaya shipwreck near Hambantota, Sri Lanka, prompts me to share this link to a video lecture by Prof. Osmund Bopearachchi(CNRS Paris), presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2013.  His presentation includes extensive photos and maps that situate the Godavaya wreck in the larger context of Roman and South Indian maritime trade in the Indian Ocean.
