Title: Excavations on Kume and Iriomote, Ryukyu Islands
Date: 1980
Source: Asian Perspectives (1978)
Abstract: Survey and excavation of two small sites in the Ryukyus, both dating to the first millennium A.D., are described. The finds are discussed in terms of adaptation to island conditions in general and the conditions of Kume and Iriomote. Analysis of shell remains points to changes in frequencies of species or genera from different environmental zones, suggesting greater utilization of the coral reef environment in later periods.
