Vastly Ingenious: The Archaeology of Pacific Mater
by Atholl Anderson

ISBN: 9781877372452
PUBLISHER: Otago University Press
FORMAT: Paperback

DIMENSIONS: 190mmX255mm 1278grams

Reflecting in 1769 on the manners and customs of the South Sea islands, Joseph Banks remarked that 'in every expedient for taking fish they are vastly ingenious.' Hence the title of this book on Pacific material culture, past and present, with broad themes of origins, the movement of peoples and the development of their technologies. Bringing together an impressive group of scholars of Pacific archaeology, the editors have designed the book as both a thoroughly up-to-date and wide-ranging survey and as a festschrift for museum archaeologist Janet Davidson, until recently based at The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Contributors: Atholl Anderson, J. Stephen Athens, Helene Martinsson-Wallin and Karen Stothert, Susan Bulmer, David V. Burley and Richard Shutler Jr, Geoffrey Clark and Duncan Wright, Peter Gathercole, Roger C. Green, Geoffrey Irwin, Rod Wallace and Stephanie Green, Kevin L. Jones, Adrienne L Kaeppler, Foss Leach, Helen Leach, Sean Mallon, Nigel Prickett, Paul Rainbird, Yoshiko H. Sinoto, Ian Smith, Jim Specht, Katherine Szabo, and Moira White.
