How Oceanographic Effects Influenced the Prehistoric Colonization of Islands

Please come to the May 1st  Archaeology  First Thursdays  presentation that will take place at 4:00 pm in Smith Memorial Center, Room 236, PSU campus.


Dr. Scott Fitzpatrick (University of Oregon) will present:


How Oceanographic Effects Influenced the Prehistoric Colonization of Islands:

A Pacific – Caribbean Comparison


Abstract:   For many island societies worldwide, the acquisition and exchange of prized resources was fundamental to developing and maintaining social, political, and economic relationships. The patchiness of resources like stone, clay, tempering agents, shell, and animals often led to differential access which then helped to fuel the rise of social complexity.  This presentation considers questions of resource acquisition as mediated by oceanographic and wind conditions, comparing results from archaeological projects in the Pacific and the Caribbean.


This event is hosted by Portland State University’s Anthropology Department
and the Anthropology Student Association.
