About the Author

Robert J. Hommon is a retired archaeologist and Senior Cultural Resource Scientist at the Pacific Islands Support Office, National Parks Service, as well as the former President of the Society for Hawaiian Archaeology.


Hommon's masterful integration of archaeological and documentary records demands attention from scholars beyond Oceania who must interpret the world's early states without eyewitness accounts. Hawai'i offers a perspective that is rarely accessible to archaeologists who study complex societies solely through material records. * James M. Bayman, University of Hawai'i at Manoa *
