Archaeological investigations began in Samoa in 1957 when Jack Golson excavated some settlements and mound on 'Upolu (Green and Davidson 1969:3). In the 1960s, Roger Green initiated an archaeological investigation program on Western Samoa (Green and Davidson 1969,1974 Green 2002:125-152). These projects were followed by a research program inaugurated by Jesse D. Jennings (and others) from 1974 to 1977 (Jennings et al 1976, Jenning and Holmer 1980, Jennings et al 1982).
