Program Description:
The prehistoric settlement of the far-flung islands of the Pacific Ocean have intrigued explorers and scholars alike for centuries. How did founding groups settle and transform the most isolated land masses on Earth? What social, economic, and technological innovations were developed that led to some of the most complex societies in the world? The Hawaiian Islands typifies the height of Oceanic social complexity. This field school will investigate a well-preserved, late prehistoric community on Moloka‘i Island. Excavations will be conducted in residential complexes and religious structures (symbols of chiefly power and status) to understand the development of ancient Hawaiian society.
