Glidden's paper (this volume) describes six sites in the same general area in which Pu 'uloa is located in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Thus this appears to he an appropriate place to include a report of field work conducted in May 1995. Pu'uloa is the largest single petroglyph site in Hawai'i: over 21,000 petroglyphs have been documented. An ancient trail runs through the site and petroglyphs also cluster along this feature. This paper describes the results of recent field work and compares Pu 'uloa to other sites in Hawai'i, leading us to conclude that petroglyph designs relate to the function of the individual site. Please refer to map on page 40 for site locations.
