about

In 1858, the British set up a penal settlement on the Andaman islands in the Bay of Bengal. This study goes beyond the story of the island penal colony to investigate the other reasons of the colonization of the islands and how their unique geography and environment shaped their history, as well as their role in a larger historical process.
