Ole Christensen completed his BA in 1970 and his MA in 1972, at the Department of Archaeology at the University of Calgary. After field work in South America, he came to the ANU as a PhD scholar in 1972, and worked for the Department of Prehistory's project at Kuk in the upper Wahgi valley. Christensen was involved in the study of the agricultural history of the area, especially scrutinizing resource utilization near the site of the Department's excavations at Kuk, led by Dr Jack Golson. The films recorded by Christensen depict people from various groups in the area using traditional methods of tool making, cooking, farming, and hunting, as well as funerary rites and other rituals. Ole Christensen died, aged 29, in a car accident on 16 December 1974.
