In May 2002, after 450 years of continuous foreign occupation, East Timor became an independent state.

 Brief history of Timor-Leste [ by UNPD ]
Anthropological investigations indicate that the first people to arrive in Timor, approximately 40,000 to 20,000 years BC, were of the Vedo-Australoide type, similar to the Vedas of Ceylon. A second wave, which arrived around 3000 years BC, consisted of Melanesians, similar to those living today in Papua New-Guinea and some Pacific Islands. Probably due ............

During the beginning of the Portuguese occupation, the Maubara subdistrict, part of the Liquiçá territory, was taken by the Netherlands. The Maubara Dutch fortification near the beach is well-preserved and still has the original cannon that once overlooked the bay. Later, Portugal negotiated with Holland and exchanged it for Flores Island, which was occupied by the Portuguese at that time. Zie voor meer Wikipedia.

Oost-Timor was voor meer dan 400 jaar een Portugese kolonie nadat de Portugezen in 1511Malakka hadden veroverd, waarna Timor vier jaar later werd geannexeerd.
