Alternative interpretations of structural evidence at Takaia River Mouth, New Zealand

Anderson, Atholl


Postholes and other features at Rakaia River Mouth, New Zealand, are interpreted by Jacomb (2005) as remains of a large house and associated structures. This is plausible, but on the same evidence storage structures can be inferred. Alternative interpretations emphasize problems in defining Archaic houses. My interpretation of the Rakaia River Mouth evidence suggests, however, a full Archaic domestic unit might be exposed by extending excavations to the west.
