Abstract

book reviews 123 identify some important research issues, A chronological synthesis is o¤ered in generate testable hypotheses, and o¤er a narrative form, considering issues of first larger interpretive context for the results of discovery, regular settlement, and recurrent their present work. temporary occupation. The strength of this Chapter 4 documents the stratigraphy of chapter is its ability to articulate the island- test excavations in four key rockshelters, specific data in the context of the archaeol- along with radiocarbon dates from asso- ogy of the larger region. In other words, ciated contexts. Radiocarbon dates from this chapter answers some questions about prior investigations are also included and how activities in a peculiar place like Wal- scrutinized. Altogether, 11 dates are avail- pole are related to concurrent activities able. The rockshelter excavations encoun- elsewhere in the region. tered well-preserved cultural deposits with True to the form of any good mono- a fair amount of internal stratigraphy. The graph, the concise conclusion recaptures the excavation profiles are nicely documented main theme of the book and evaluates what in referencetoplanand sectionviews of has been learned about this theme from the the rockshelters.
