Research into prehistoric Eurasian, American, and African portable art is well established; however, such artefacts remain proportionally underreported from Australian, Pacific, and Southeast Asian archaeological contexts. This volume attempts to address this gap introducing the readership to past and present research in this region. This chapter outlines the research presented in this volume and also explores the role and relevance of portable art research in the Asia-Pacific within broader international dialogues.
