Abstract: Introduction: In 1969 White conducted an archaeological survey in the north-central part of New Ireland, concentrating primarily on the east coast. Excavations were conducted at two sites, Balof shelter (White 1972

Downie and White 1978
White, Downie, and Ambrose 1978) and the open site of Lesu (White 1972). The latter excavations are described in this report. Preliminary analysis of the material was undertaken by White in 1970-1971 and a more complete analysis was made by Downie in 1977-1978. In this report, the sections on faunal material, pottery, shell, and bone artifacts are primarily the work of Downie
others are by White. Appendix 2, on pottery tempers, is by W. R. Dickinson.
