The first settlement of Remote Oceania: the Philippines to the Marianas

Hung, Hsiao-Chun; Carson, Mike; Bellwood, Peter; Campos, Frediliza; Piper, Philip; Dizon, Eusebio Z; Bolunia, Mary Jane; Oxenham, Marc; Chi, Zhang


The authors compare pottery assemblages in the Marianas and the Philippines to claim endorsement for a first human expansion into the open Pacific around 1500 BC. The Marianas are separated from the Philippines by 2300km of open sea, so they are proposing an epic pioneering voyage of men and women, with presumably some cultivated plants but apparently no animals. How did they manage this unprecedented journey?
