The Letter of Gijsbert Bastiaensz, Predikant written from Batavia, from here to his Bretheren concerning his perilous journey, going to India [the Indies] in the year 1628.

Start the evening with an exclusive and private tour
Using collection objects and results from recent excavations at Batavia’s graveyard (Beacon Island) in the Abrolhos, Maritime Archaeology Curator, Corioli Souter will retell the story of the Batavia mutiny from a different perspective—that of the women aboard. This guided tour will creatively explore associations between archaeological assemblages, contemporary objects, imagery and archives to consider these women as active participants in the story of Batavia.
