Historical Archaeology of Early Modern Colonialism in Asia-Pacific

This chapter argues that traditional historiography has overlooked the extent of early encounters between indigenous populations and Europeans in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. By emphasizing only the eighteenth century as the time of the first relevant European presence in the Pacific, traditional historiography ignores the potential consequences of earlier encounters on local peoples. This historiographical absence is the result of several factors, and it has serious implications for the anthropological, archaeological, and historical understanding of the Pacific.
