Map of Lapita Pottery Archaeological SitesLoad map
The coordinates shown for all tentative sites were produced as a community effort. They are not official and may change on inscription.
Not sure what to think of this. I visited Tonga for 1 week and explored mostly the main island (maybe in the Ha'apai it's better?) where there is also a location. First of all, nobody knew about the Lapita Pottery SITES (they know about the pottery). It's not included in any tour.
I visited the Nukuleka site. It's there. But there is no excavations at the moment going on. It's just covered up and you cannot see anything. I tried to find pottery in a museum in Tonga but I was told what was there was taken abroad.
WHS? I do understand the value of Lapita pottery, but the sites themselves don't have any interesting value. I think it's a great museum piece and that's it.
