Investigating environment and subsistence in New Guinea: faunal analysis of northern lowland coastal sites, PNG

This presentation outlines future research on the faunal assemblages from four sites from the Vanimo coast region of Papua New Guinea. Previous analyses of archaeological faunal assemblages from New Guinea sites have largely focused on the potential overlap of megafauna and humans in the Pleistocene, or have aimed to identify and date the initial introduction of pig (Sus scrofa). Studies that provide in-depth examinations of whole faunal assemblages are few, and none have been conducted for lowland coastal sites in mainland Papua New Guinea.
