Map endpapers and 24 plates.The famous author sailor of the Kon-Tiki, Ra and Tigris expeditions was invited by the government of the Maldives to investigate recent archaeological finds there and despite knowing little of these 1200 or so islands in the Indian Ocean, and less of the language and customs of its people, he undertook the fascinating study. Maldive history was reckoned to have begun in AD 1153, or year 853 of the Holy Prophet, when the islanders embraced the Islamic faith and any pre Moslem relics were usually destroyed. *** NOT EX LIB ***
