Isotopic uniformity and segregation in Tongan mounds
Oral traditions, historical sources and geochemical results indicate that Polynesian chiefly societies had extensive inter-island interactions. Tonga was often a central hub of these interactions, particularly during the Tongan state era (750-150 BP). Archaeological evidence for human migration and inter-island mobility based on isotopic data from human remains, however, is sparse. We used strontium isotope analysis of human enamel excavated from a burial mound in the elite chiefly precinct of...[Show more]
