In 1970, Robert Renger, then a graduate student at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), conducted an intensive archaeological survey in the seaward portions of a land unit (ahupua'a) called Kaloko, located in North Kana on Hawai'i Island (Fig. I). This survey was one of Hawaii's early contract archaeology projects, undertaken for Huehue Ranch, the landowner, which was then planning a development in seaward Kaloko.

The Influence of Religious Authority in Everyday Life: A landscape scale study of domestic architecture and religious law in ancient Hawai‘i
Public architecture has proven its utility as a metric for the materialization of religious authority however archaeologists have been less successful at identifying how ideology is materialized outside of formal ritual settings. Here we address the question of how religious laws that dictated separation of people and activities – known as the kapu system – influenced the way homes were built in pre-European contact era Hawai‘i. On the landscape scale, we consider three variables that could be...

Previous pollen analysis for this site examined three sediment samples from open air water wells (Scott Cummings...
