    Abstract

    The authors were first alerted to the presence of cultural material in the creek shores by Paul Vuhu, Ambae West fieldworker at the Vanuatu Cultural Center (VCC). Bedford carried out work on Ambae in 2005 in collaboration with Paul Vuhu, James Garae, then Ambae Eastern Fieldworker at the Vanuatu Cultural Center (VCC) and Andrew Hoffman at the Vanuatu Cultural Center (VCC), Port Vila. Claude Vusi guided us to the initial site and showed us a collection of shards. In 2007, Spriggs and Bedford collaborated with the new fieldworkers in the region, David Boe, Claude Vusi, Lonni Vusi, Ferno Vusi, Oscar Leo and Erickson Mala. We thank landowners Dickinson Vusi and Matthew Tari for allowing us to excavate their land. This research is part of a project funded by the Australian National Research Council (ARC, DP 0556874) focused on studying cultural transformation in northern Vanuatu. Shane Cronin, University of Auckland, provided valuable references and information on Ambae tephrostratigraphy.
