A team of archaeologists in Indonesia has discovered what is said to be the central palace of the Majapahit kingdom using a local well as a reference point, which was said to have been used by the kingdom’s founder in the 12th century. The kingdom was dominant in East Java from 1293 to 1528 and at its height replaced Srivijaya for dominance over the Southeast Asian seas. The centre of the Majapahit kingdom is held to be in the vicinity of Trowulan, a village in East Java.
