Comments:
The Kona district of Hawai'i is a rich archive of Hawaiian past and prime source for research today. The volcanic soils of Kealakekua gave rise to an extensive agricultural complex before the era of Kamehameha the Great, and to a large populus as well. It was a regional political and religious center before the arrival of Europeans, the landing site of Capt. James Cook, and then a prominent area of cultural interchange as Western missionaries, whalers, and entrepreneurs moved in. Amy B. H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden provides us a look into this past--a place to observe and to investigate agricultural technologies that once supported the development of Hawaiian society. This volume reports the two decades of archaeological work that have taken place on the Garden grounds. For achaeologists and anthropologists, GARDENS OF LONO adds significantly to our body of knowledge about early Hawaiian agricultural practices and organization.
