Brief description This project involves international collaboration between PNG, French, US, Canadian & Australian researchers, and thus contributes to constructive international links between these countries. These collaborations are at local community and national institutional levels, and involve mutual participation in field and laboratory research. They also provide opportunities for numerous PNG and Australian archaeology students to gain valuable fieldwork experience and training in archaeological methods and in working in partner relationships involving scientific researchers and Indigenous communities. This research will contribute to National Identity in investigating prehistoric cultural links with PNG at NE Australia's doorstep.
