Following the Bead Hunters
The Srivijaya Empire ruled Indonesia from the 7th to the 13th century.  This was a bead
culture.  The Empire worshipped Buddha, but traded beads.  You can still find beads in East
Java if you know where to dig.  Noelle and Ken went on a bead adventure to river bank wash
outs and corn field excavations, bargaining with bead diggers, collecting bead stories.
The booty from this adventure became the Jatim Bead necklace collection.
