Abstract

Archaeological theory has usually depended upon investigating locations through the entire length of occupation. The novelty of addressing archaeological data through the analysis of separate events in time has been proposed by several scholars. An eventful analysis of archaeology or “eventful archaeology” is addressed here by analyzing archaeological data obtain from the Koholuapapa heiau on the island of Maui. The discovery of an adjacent residential enclosure constructed after the collapse of the kapu system across the Hawaiian archipelago supports a spatial transformation. Data analysis of the archaeological investigation identifies the numerous cascading events leading up to the cultural transformation of the material record.
