dc.description.abstract The archaeological site VL21/5 is situated on the island of Naigani in the Fiji Islands. The site was discovered in 1981 during excavations for the building of a resort complex. Salvage archaeology that ensued recovered an occupation zone of relatively undisturbed material which was unmistakably 'Lapitoid' in association. The site comprised three stratigraphic layers. In the course of this research various aspects of the archaeological assemblage are investigated, the major component at the site was pottery which was analysed according to the general considerations of shape, decoration and technology, other elements are shell and stone artefacts and their analysis is by way of description. The components have been used for the reconstruction of events and the nature of occupancy during the habitation of the site. en
