Tracing the Movement of Ancient Hawaiian Adzes

Location: Wentworth Hall, Room # 1 (auditorium)

A Maunakea Speaker Series presentation by Dr. Peter Mills, University of Hawai'i at Hilo, Anthropology.

Professor Peter Mills (anthropology, UH Hilo) will present an overview of his work with Professor Steve Lundblad (geology, UH Hilo) in using non-destructive energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) to study the dispersal of ancient Hawaiian stone tools throughout the islands. Their work has helped define the role of the Maunakea adze quarry and other stone tool quarries in ancient Hawaiian economies, inter-island voyaging, and trade.

Dr. Peter Mills is an archaeologist who has been making his own stone tools since the 1980s, and who focuses broadly on issues of Hawaiian culture from pre-contact and colonial eras. He has been teaching at UH Hilo since 1997, is a former chair of the department of anthropology, and is currently serving as director of UH Hilo's new MA in Heritage Management.

The Maunakea Speaker Series is free and open to the public.

Special Restrictions: On-campus parking is open and available without charge after 4:00 pm.
