Miksic, John N and Kamei Meitoku Research on the Ceramics Discovered at the Trowulan Site in Indonesia,  Tokyo,Japan: Senshu University, 2010

A  collection of sherds donated to Dr. Miksic consists of very important examples  of Yuan Dynasty blue and white ceramics which are believed to have been  collected at Trowulan, east Java,   Indonesia. This  was the 14th-century capital of Majapahit, which claimed Singapore  as one of its dependencies.  The blue and white sherds are probably the  largest single collection of this type in the world. Dr. Miksic and Prof. Kamei  Meitoku of Senshu University, Japan, collaborated on a two-year project to  catalogue and analyze this material, which will be of interest to scholars  working on the development of Chinese porcelain in general, and in trade  between China and Southeast Asia in the 14th century.
