The larger of the lesser Sunda Islands are, from West to east, Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba, Flores and Timor. Today, the region is administratively divided in the Indonesian provinces of Nusa Tenggara Barat, Nusa Tenggara Timur and the independent Republic of Timor L'Este (East Timor). Regional volcanoes, such as Mount Rinjani on Lombok (major eruption 1257 or 1258) and Mount Tambora on Sumbawa (major eruption 1815), had a significant impact on world climate.

The island chain has been settled in the Pleistocene. Australian archaeologists found evidence for deep sea fishing in a cave on Timor for 42,000 BP. Bronze Age items found on Bali date from 600 BCE to 800 CE and show influence of the Dong Son culture (Vietnam).
The Neolithic Revolution (the introduction of farming), new metalworking techniques (bronze, iron) seem to have had little impact on the islands east of Sumbawa. Lombok and Sumbawa have been sites of catastrophic volcanic eruptions, and much historical evidence may still be buried under a layer of Voilcanic ash. On the island of Sumba, Megalithic stoneworking methods are applied up to the present day.

Early History
Hinduism arrived on Bali about 200 BCE. The oldest written sources from Bali are Buddhist inscriptions from about 800 CE. Both Hinduism and Buddhism coexisted on Bali for many centuries; Hinduism came to dominate. The Indian religions did find followers on Lombok. They seem not to have had an impact on Sumba, Flores and Timor; on Sumba, headhunting (which would have been suppressed by Hindu priests and Buddhist monks) continued into recent time.

Scientists in 2013 established a major eruption of Mount Rinjani on Lombok in 1257 or 1258 as the likely cause for worldwide climate change (the end of the Medieval Warm Period and the beginning of the Little Ice Age).
Bali was a unified Kingdom From the 10th century to its conquest by Majapahit in 1343 (Majapahit influence even extended to Lombok and Western Sumbawa).

The Portuguese arrived in the early 16th century; Dominicans began to proselytize on Solor and Timor. In the 16th century, a resurgent Hindu Kingdom of Bali ruled Blambangan (on Java, until 1580) and Lombok. Then Bali disintegrated into a number of rival polities. The Kingdom of Bima on Sumbawa, a regional trade center, converted to Islam and became the Sultanate of Bima in 1620 (influenced by Gowa/Makassar, Celebes). Islam became the dominant religion on Lombok. The V.O.C. showed little interest in the Lesser Sunda Islands, other than pusuing the policy of limiting Portuguese influence. Flores, Timor and Sumba were politically divided into numerous statelets.

At the beginning of the 19th century, the Lesser Sunda Islands were divided in a larger Dutch and a smaller Portuguese sphere of influence (which was to develop into Portuguese East Timor; for information specific to it, see History of Timor L'Este. The V.O.C. had declared bankrupcy in 1795 and was succeeded by the Dutch state. Its possessions in the Malay Archipelago, the Dutch East Indies, from 1811 to 1816 came under British occupation. During this occupation, Mount Tambora erupted in 1815, the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history, causing "the year without a summer" in Europe in 1816.
In 1846 and 1849 the Dutch East Indies terminated certain states on Bali and established direct rule; in 1901-1912 the Dutch "pacified" the remaining areas on the Lesser Sunda Islands, except for Portuguese East Timor, the borders of which had been agreed upon in 1859.
In the early 20th century, Bali became a tourist destination.

since 1949
In 1949 Indonesia became independent; the Lesser Sunda Islands (except for East Timor) became the administrative region of Nusa Tenggara. Following the Velvet Revolution in Portugal in 1974, East Timor declared independence in 1975. In the same year, Indonesian troops occupied East Timor; Indonesia annexed East Timor. In the 1990s East Timorese demands for political independence gained worldswide attention. In a 1999 referendum, the East Timorese opted for independence.
