The Origins of the First New Zealanders


This multidisciplinary volume presents a fresh look at New Zealand settlement history. Contributors re-examine the orthodox scenario of Polynesian colonization, and by studying aspects of New Zealand like the languages, the climate, the archeological evidence, and the geomorphology, they create new and challenging models for the date, type, and source of that country's colonization.
