A Lapita burrial. There are 3 human jaw bones in this burrial. By analyzing the chemical composition of teeth, Mathew Spriggs has concluded that some of the people burried here were born far away. As one of the archeologist Frederique said, "I think this one has a very complicated history." Many of the burrials at the Teouma Lapita site have misplaced heads and other bones.
