Archaeology of Pacific Oceania : Inhabiting a Sea of Islands Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge World Archaeology series


This book integrates a region-wide chronological narrative of the archaeology of Pacific Oceania.

How and why did this vast sea of islands, covering nearly one-third of the world's surface, come to be inhabited over the last several millennia, transcending significant change in ecology, demography, and society?

What can any or all of the thousands of islands offer as ideal model systems toward comprehending globally significant issues of human-environment relations and coping with changing circumstances of natural and cultural history?

A new synthesis of Pacific Oceanic archaeology addresses these questions, based largely on the author's investigations throughout the diverse region.
