Glass beads and trade in southern and eastern Africa and the Indian Ocean, 7th to 16th centuries AD
Notes: 
"This thesis takes a bead's eye view of eastern Africa and Indian Ocean trade, focusing particularly on the trade and trade networks that connected southern Africa to the rest of the world. It also examines how that trade affected communities across the region. The study is largely empirical, based on a detailed body of research that has resulted in the development of a glass bead series for southern Africa that covers the time period between the 7th and the 16th centuries AD. It includes both the morphological characteristics that define each series and the chemical compositions of the glasses from which the beads were made"--P. 13.
