The 2013 Field Season Begins!

Posted on June 10, 2013 by Carl Lipo

 

We did our first day of “field” activities yesterday. Terry Hunt came to the Tradewinds Ranch house and gave us an intro lecture on the archaeology of the Pacific and an introduction to Hawaiian prehistory.  Then, we went out to Kualoa Ranch.  David Morgan met us with his daughter and kindly took us on a bus-tour of the Ka’a'awa valley. He pointed out the movie sets, some potential archaeological features, a couple of fantastic spring/upwelling/bogs,  and a variety of plants. We got to see the WWII gun bunkers and the submarine set piece he bought during the Lost  auction. Fun and informative. Afterwards, students worked on their data dictionaries as they planned for the upcoming field studies.  We had a somewhat impromptu burger cooking dinner back at the house.
