This small exhibition traces the long and complex history of Indian Ocean trade and exchange, from ancient times to the present.

For thousands of years, the Indian Ocean has been a crossing road for people, objects and even ideas and thoughts. Merchants were traveling between Africa, Middle East and Asia with the only aim of trading items.

This display presents objects from across different sections of the British Museum’s collection evoking this fascinating history across civilisations.
