Summary

Much of Professor Forchhammer's research in Burma in the 1880s remains unpublished. Some of this missing work has turned up in the archives of the India Office Library, London. It enables us to estimate the significance of the work that remains lost. It is now possible to see late nineteenth century scholarship on Burma in a new light. I offer part of that new view: that which pertains to the study of the Mon culture of Burma.
