Merchants and sailors have crossed the Indian Ocean for thousands of years and 70% of the world's goods continue to do so today. This vast expanse of water was the worlds's first highway and has been the centre of the world economy for millennia, but how well do we know it? The Travellers & Traders in the Indian Ocean World exhibition, fittingly located in the Western Australian Maritime Museum in Fremantle on the edge of the ocean, takes you on your own journey across the Indian Ocean to discover its rich history through ancient objects and stories about its trades, explores and the different popes who inhabit its shores.
