This chapter begins with a discussion of the history of archaeology in Hawaii and its links to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. It then presents the author’s account of his fieldwork on Maui in the summer of 1966 while he was a sophomore at Punahou School. The Bishop Museum had received a three-year grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation for a program of archaeological research in Hawaii. One objective of this program was a settlement-pattern survey of Kahikinui. As part of the two-man surveying team for the project, the author was tasked with precisely mapping sites located by others, along with the topography. For short intervals during the mapping, his group also took time out to dig in a few sites which yielded several artifacts.
