the Lapita epic

Wednesday 10 November 2010, cinema

The study day aims to summarise knowledge about the Lapita population who inhabited the Pacific south west 3000 years ago. The colloquium involves an international panel of archaeologists and anthropologists specialising in the subject. The different themes of the day will cover the great phases and subjects of study relating to the Lapita, from their Austronesian origins in south east Asia until the discovery of the frontier of western Polynesia in the central Pacific. All of the Anglo-Saxon speakers are university lecturers, and the PowerPoint presentations are open both to professional archaeologists and to students of all levels with an interest in the subject. The study day will end with a debate open to the participants.

colloquium organised in the context of the Lapita exhibition, from 9 November 2010 to 9 January 2011
