The traditional boats of Vietnam, an overview

Pham, Charlotte, Blue, Lucy and Palmer, Colin (2010) The traditional boats of Vietnam, an overview International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, 39, (2), pp. 258-277. (doi:10.1111/j.1095-9270.2010.00266.x).

Record type: Article


This paper addresses the material boat culture of Vietnam both in its current context and more specifically through an assessment of how the boats of Vietnam have been studied in the past. It presents a comprehensive summary of past publications describing the construction, use and variety of boats in the region, from the earliest volumes to modern research projects, including the work of the US military. It highlights the rich diversity of construction approaches and boat-types that are still built and used, and demonstrates the need for further field research to record the fast-disappearing traditional boats of Vietnam.
