The third largest island in the world is known for its great biodiversity, but did you know that Borneo was also a major maritime node in Southeast Asian trade? Now, the island is split up among Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia and so uncovering the history of the island is less easy. In Brunei, a history seminar wrapping up today would have seen the presentation of some 27 papers discussing the history of Brunei and Borneo.
