HY101 Pacific Islands Prehistory II O C


Prerequisites: Admission into Undergraduate Programme
Course Coordinator: Dr. Nicholas Halter

HY101 covers Pacific history from the earliest times to about 1800. It surveys the original exploration and colonisation of the Pacific Ocean by the ancestors of the Micronesians, Melanesians and Polynesians, and the ways that they developed their societies. We will consider the environmental impact of islanders on their new homes, the development of sailing and navigation, the growth of warfare and chiefdoms, and finish with a survey of traditional Pacific societies.
