This is a great archaeological find. It will perhaps redirect new thoughts and understanding of Ancient Polynesian people. If plain ware pottery and Lapita designed pottery came from different groups of migrators. What does this mean for the traveling routes of these people and where did they end up.…Where does these plain ware pottery originate from? Please no haters...

Another great reading in understanding our migration into the Pacific. This would be I think the route the Lapita Civilization took. Could the Plain ware pottery makers be an earlier group or civilization that departed this same route?
