Abstract [en]

In the orthodox model of change in East Polynesian material culture,the riseofmonumentalceremonial sites is predicted as occurring earlierin the central archipelagos than at the margins. We have used existingand new radiocarbon dates from marae and ahu respectively to testthis proposition in relation to the Society Islands and Easter Island(Rapa Nui). The data contradict the anticipated trend by showing thatthe initial phase of complex ceremonial sites began earlier, ca. cal AD1300–1400 on Rapa Nui than in the Societies, ca. cal AD 1400–1600.Different explanations are canvassed. The sample size used here is stillquite small; future investigations and larger sample sizes may changeor confirm the results.
