The Archaeology of Micronesia
Cambridge University Press, 03.06.2004 - 301 Seiten
This is the first book-length archaeological study of Micronesia, an island group in the Western Pacific Ocean. Drawing on a wide range of archaeological, anthropological and historical sources, the author surveys the development of these islands, beginning with the earliest process of human colonisation, and places this within the broader context of Pacific Island studies. Addressing contemporary debates around processes of colonisation, social organisation, environmental change and the interpretation of material culture, this book will be essential reading for any scholar with an interest in the archaeology of the Pacific.
