Listing Detail Tabs

The Prehistoric Exploration and Colonisation of the Pacific is one of the most remarkable episodes of human prehistory. Early sea-going explorers had no prior knowledge of Pacific Geography, no documents to record their route, no metal, no instruments for measuring time and none for navigation. Forty years of modern archaeology, experimental voyages in rafts and computer simulations of winds and likely routes have produced an enormous range of literature on this controversial subject.
This book represents a major advance in knowledge of the settlement of the Pacific. The author uses an innovative model to establish a detailed theory of prehistoric navigation. He argues that exploration was raid and purposeful undertaken systematically and that navigation methods progressively improved.
