Feathered Gods and Fishhooks Product Description:
Feathered Gods and Fishhooks
The Archaeology of Hawai‘i
by Patrick Vinton Kirch, with Mark D. McCoy
The first edition of Feathered Gods and Fishhooks was the pioneering synthesis of ancient Hawaiian civilization from an archaeological perspective. This long-awaited revised edition now brings the field up to date, incorporating the results from hundreds of archaeological projects undertaken throughout the Hawaiian Islands over the past thirty-five years that have benefited from tremendous technological advancements, and presents an authoritative account of the origins and progression of Hawaiian culture prior to the arrival of Europeans. Generously illustrated, this revision includes dozens of new photographs and maps, along with a selection of color plates.
As with the first edition, the revised Feathered Gods and Fishhooks is an indispensable resource on the history of ancient Hawai‘i. Of particular note is the extensive bibliography, a key guide to hundreds of often difficult-to-locate reports and publications on Hawaiian archaeology.
Patrick Vinton Kirch is professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, and professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley.
Mark D. McCoy is professor of anthropology at Florida State University in Tallahassee.
