Taking the high ground : the archaeology of Rapa, a fortified island in remote East Polynesia by Atholl Anderson( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings the remote and little known island of Rapa firmly to the forefront of Polynesian archaeology. Thirteen authors contribute 14 chapters, covering not only the basic archaeology of coastal sites, rock shelters, and fortifications, but faunal remains, agricultural development, and marine exploitation. The results, presented within a chronology framed by Bayesian analysis, are set against a background of ethnohistory and ethnology. Highly unusual in tropical Polynesian archaeology are descriptions of artefacts of perishable material. Taking the High Ground provides important insights into how a group of Polynesian settlers adapted to an isolated and in some ways restrictive environment
The early prehistory of Fiji by Geoffrey R Clark( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I enjoyed reading this volume. It is rare to see such a comprehensive report on hard data published these days, especially one so insightfully contextualised by the editors' introductory and concluding chapters. These scholars and the others involved in the work really know their stuff, and it shows. The editors connect the preoccupations of Pacific archaeologists with those of their colleagues working in other island regions and on big questions of colonisation, migration, interaction and patterns and processes of cultural change in hitherto-uninhabited environments. These sorts of outward-looking, big-picture contextual studies are invaluable, but all too often are missing from locally- and regionally-oriented writing, very much to its detriment. In sum, the work strongly advances our understanding of the early prehistory of Fiji through its well-integrated combination of original research and the reinterpretation of existing knowledge in the context of wider theoretical and historical concerns. In doing so The Early Prehistory of Fiji makes a truly substantial contribution to Pacific and archaeological scholarship
Islands of inquiry : colonisation, seafaring and the archaeology of maritime landscapes by Geoffrey R Clark( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many of the papers in this volume present new and innovative research into the processes of maritime colonisation, processes that affect archaeological contexts from islands to continents. Others shift focus from process to the archaeology of maritime places from the Bering to the Torres Straits, providing highly detailed discussions of how living by and with the sea is woven into all elements of human life from subsistence to trade and to ritual. Of equal importance are more abstract discussions of islands as natural places refashioned by human occupation, either through the introduction of new organisms or new systems of production and consumption. These transformation stories gain further texture (and variety) through close examinations of some of the more significant consequences of colonisation and migration, particularly the creation of new cultural identities. A final set of papers explores the ways in which the techniques of archaelogical sciences have provided insights into the fauna of the islands and the human history of such places."--Provided by publisher
Prodigious birds : moas and moa-hunting in prehistoric New Zealand by Atholl Anderson( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prodigious Birds brings together the entire field of moa-related research, some 150 years of enquiry. The moa was a large flightless bird, hunted into extinction by the Maori tribes of New Zealand before the arrival of Europeans. Atholl Anderson brings an historical perspective to the development of moa research and its formative debates, analytical methods and results, reviewing evidence from palaeontology, biology, archaeology, ethnography and history"--Publisher's description
Traditional lifeways of the Southern Maori : the Otago University Museum ethnological project, 1920 by H Beattie( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Journalist and researcher Herries Beattie worked with Southern Maori for almost fifty years and produced many books. With a strong sense that traditional knowledge needed to be recorded, in 1920 he interviewed people from Foveaux Strait to North Canterbury and from Nelson and Westland, with Otago Museum support. He then transcribed notebooks lent to him by his informants, visited the Museum with them, recording southern names for fauna and artefacts, travelled to traditional sites, and consulted the work of earlier researchers. Finally he worked his findings up into the systematic notes that eventually became MS 181 in the Hocken Library, a highly valued but increasingly fragile treasury of knowledge."--Back cover
The welcome of strangers : an ethnohistory of southern Maori A.D. 1650-1850 by Atholl Anderson( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two hundred years ago, Maori in the south of New Zealand had a lifestyle quite distinct from their northern cousins, and different experiences of contact with Europeans. This book provides an insight into those times, covering the period 1650-1850, and focusing on Maori history from Marlborough to Stewart Island." "Atholl Anderson surveys the origins and migrations of Waitaha and Kati Mamoe, and the subsequent arrival of Ngai Tahu and the establishment of their tribal authority and lifeways in the South Island. Drawing on tribal knowledge as well as early written accounts, he creates the fullest description yet of Maori in this period."--Jacket

Ngāi Tahu : a migration history : the Carrington text by A. H Carrington( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Te Maire Tau writes: 'I first came across the Carrington typescript in 1987 when, as an under-graduate, I was researching our tribe's history in the Alexander Turnbull Library. Reading the text, I was captured for the rest of the day. Besides the exhilaration that historians always feel on coming across an old and little known manuscript, the story that Carrington told read differently from the standard histories of Ngai Tahu written by nineteenth-century scholars ... ' Journalist Hugh Carrington wrote a history of Ngai Tahu in the 1930s, drawing on the knowledge of Oaro elder Hariata Beaton-Morel and earlier scholars. This text has been framed and edited by Te Maire Tau and Atholl Anderson, creating a history of Ngai Tahu's migration from the Wellington region through to Rakiura. Complementary traditions, in particular those recorded by Thomas Green, are also included. This remarkable account presents oral tradition alongside archaeological evidence and narrative history. The editors both have extensive experience in researching the past of southern New Zealand, particularly Ngai Tahu."--Publisher's description
