Abstract

Some pathological features evident in the human skeletal material from the Lapita site at Pea, Tonga, Site To. 1, are reinterpreted. Some reordering of the remains between individuals is suggested, and previous suggestions that there is evidence of either metastatic carcinoma or early Pagets disease in the cranial vault are not supported.
