New Data from an Open Neolithic Site in Eastern Indonesia

New Data from an Open Neolithic Site in Eastern Indonesia <p>abstract:</p><p>Here we report the results of excavation and analyses of an open site on Pulau Ay, a small (ca. 4 km2) limestone island located in the Banda Islands, central Maluku, Indonesia.
