Isabel McBryde

Introduction*

Friday 7 May saw many of Australia’s community of archaeologists gathered in the Coombs Building at The Australian National University to honour Jack Golson’s pioneering contribution to the study of Pacific prehistory. They were also honouring his leadership as foundation Professor in the Department of Prehistory in the Research School of Pacific Studies. The occasion was marked by the presentation of a special volume, A Community of Culture: The People and Prehistory of the Pacific, written as a tribute from his colleagues. This volume was edited by Matthew Spriggs, Douglas Yen, Wal Ambrose, Rhys Jones, Alan Thorne and Ann Andrews and published by the Department of Prehistory, Research School of Pacific Studies, The Australian National University in Canberra in 1993,
