Abstract There is arguably no better place than Oceania to practice a comparative “historical science” such as archaeology. The Pacific encompasses more than 100 million km2 of ocean, thousands of islands of all shapes and sizes, and enormous biotic diversity. Human colonization began here some 40,000 years ago in the archipelagoes of the southwestern Pacific and as recently as under a millennium ago at the far eastern margins of the “Great Ocean,” in New Zealand. Patrick Kirch is a long‐standing expert in the area with more than 30 years’ experience in field research and the author of over a dozen books and monographs and more than 150 articles.
