volume comprises 23 chapters that focus on the archaeology of Lapita, a
cultural horizon associated with the founding populations who first colonised
much of the south west Pacific some 3000 years ago. The Lapita culture has
been most clearly defined by its distinctive dentate-stamped decorated
pottery and the design system represented on it and on further incised pots.
Modern research now encompasses a whole range of aspects associated with
Lapita and this is reflected in this volume. The broad overlapping themes of
the volume-Lapita distribution and chronology, society and subsistence-relate
to research questions that have long been debated in relation to Lapita.
