Description

This project developed out of large-scale salvage excavations by Monash University associated with the PNG LNG Project. The project builds on the extra-ordinary finding of Lapita ceramics at Caution Bay near Port Moresby and discovery of a new arm to Lapita colonisation of the Pacific. The project investigates pre-Lapita settlement and maritime specialisation between 3000 and 5000 years ago.
