This chapter focuses on the archaeological excavations and investigations conducted at site 50–30–01–196 of Nuʻalolo Kai between 1958 and 1990. Bishop Museum initiated the first excavations at Nuʻalolo Kai in 1958 and again in 1959, 1960, and 1964. The excavations were led by Bishop Museum archaeologists Kenneth Emory, William Bonk, and Lloyd Soehren, who concentrated on the habitation areas beneath the eastern cliffs (Bennett's site 196, now referred to as site 50–30–01–196). This chapter first provides a background on the Bishop Museum excavations during the period 1958–1964 before discussing the excavations undertaken by the University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa in 1990. It also considers the radiocarbon dating of site 50–30–01–196, along with the analytic zones used throughout the book as the chronological framework for the deposits and their associated faunal materials.

Keywords:   archaeological excavations, Nuʻalolo Kai, Bishop Museum, archaeologists, University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa, radiocarbon dating, analytic zones, fauna, Kenneth Emory, William Bonk
