Indian Ocean Trade

Studying Islam in India or Africa, then you are also probably studying trade in the Indian Ocean? This website offers one of the best resources I’ve seen on Indian Ocean trade. It’s an interactive site that has animated maps from each period in history (prehistory, classical period, medieval, global). The maps show what products were traded and where they went. You can click around the maps and find out what technologies were used (like the astrolabe).

If you are interested, a colleague of mine wrote a very good lesson using the site. It's a goggle document that I would be glad to share if you like.
