Description - Pieces of the Vanuatu Puzzle by Stuart Bedford
of the Vanuatu Puzzle presents the results of the most
intensive and widespread archaeological investigations in Vanuatu for more
than 30 years. For the first time the results of extensive excavations
carried out on three islands in the archipelago are published. The sites span
from the period of initial Lapita settlement through to later cultural
transformations. The research has brought greater clarity to the early
history of the Vanuatu archipelago and has wider implications for the region
in general particularly in terms of how processes of cultural change are
It is an essential reference work both for those archaeologists working in
the western Pacific but also for those who deal with material culture
generally and pottery more specifically.
