Synopsis: The exploration and colonization of the Pacific is a remarkable episode in human prehistory. Early sea-going explorers had no knowledge of Pacific geography, no instruments for measuring time and none for exploration. Forty years of modern archaeology, experimental voyages in rafts, and computer simulations of voyages have produced an normous range of literature on this controversial subject. This book represents a major advance in knowledge of the settlement of the Pacific by suggesting that exploration was rapid, purposeful and undertaken systematically, and that navigation methods progressively improved.

Book Description: Forty years of modern archaeology, experimental voyages in rafts and computer simulations have produced an enormous range of literature on the controversial subject of the exploration and colonization of the Pacific. This book represents a major advance in knowledge of prehistoric settlement.
