    The chapters in this volume offer some insight into how widespread the phenomenon of fortification was throughout the Wallacean archipelago. Chapter 10, in particular, presents historical information and photographic records for a number of fortified settlements in Maluku, providing details on the number of houses they contained and the way in which they operated as defensive structures. This chapter presents additional commentary, locational information and photographic records of fortified settlements recorded during the course of general archaeological surveys on Sumba, Timor-Leste, Kisar, Babar and Wetang Islands (Figure 11.1), the nature of which will be explained in more detail below.
