Movement of ideas not materials: locally manufactured pottery on Mabuyag Island, Western Torres Strait

Wright, Duncan; Dickinson, William

Description

We report a new site with locally made pottery on the Western Torres Strait island of Mabuyag (Mabuiag). The study uses petrographic and chronological results to reassess the antiquity of pottery in the region. It adds to knowledge which points to significant changes in the Torres Strait after 1700 BP..
