Abstract

[Extract] I here present preliminary results and interpretations from several months' fieldwork and extensive historic research undertaken on early settlement sites on the Australian offshore island of Lord Howe.1 Following preliminary work by other researchers focused on confirming the antiquity of the island's human occupation, a more detailed investigation of the historic record and its revelations about the existing settlement landscape was desired to enable an informative and comparable case study of historically recorded human colonization on a Pacific island. Further, I present a study of the nature of island landscapes, the influence of Pacific trade and exchange networks and the development of communities in varying scales of isolation to situate Lord Howe Island in its own historic and geographic context.
