Garapan and San Roque: Case Studies from Saipan, CNMI

Author(s): Michael Dega; David Perzinski

Year: 2017


This paper takes site data from two recently excavated locales on Saipan and discusses the archaeology, physical anthropology, and bioarchaeology of the sites. The goal is to frame these within larger questions of origins, changes in the island's demography through time, and to assess several migration models for settlement of Saipan and the Northern Marianas.
