This chapter presents the author’s account of the settlement-pattern mapping of Kīpapa in July 1995. Along with a team of Berkeley students and state archeologists, his goal for the summer was to fill in a major gap in the 1966 survey of the uplands. He showed the team a blank area on the map compiled from his 1966 plane-table sheets, lying between the Piʻilani Highway and the 1966 mauka survey area. This blank space was about 1 kilometer square. The area was likely to contain a high density of archaeological sites and was treated as the first priority. As the days passed the team worked progressively from west to east across the Chapman Gap, adding hundreds of newly discovered archaeological features to the growing database.
