Save the date! The ANU Vanuatu Field School is coming soon, in July 2023.
Watch this space for more information, but start planning for it now!
The field school will be investigating a newly discovered colonising settlement on Efate Island, in central Vanuatu. This phase relates to what is known as the Lapita period, beginning some 3,000 years ago.
Initial investigations at the site indicate that settlement in the area continues for at least 1,600 years, following later pottery traditions recorded across the site.
