In 1996, seventeen enormous and beautiful, hand-drawn cotton maps were discovered in the Grand Palace, Bangkok. They record cartographically Siamese warfare and trade in the early Bangkok Period (1782-1851). Focusing on Siam and her neighbours, the collection includes a four-metre coastal map of peninsular Malaysia through China to Korea.

Dr. Santanee Phasuk gained her doctorate in cartography from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Professor Emeritus Philip Stott was professor of Geography at SOAS.
