A fundamental change in the relationships between people and the sea was marked by a rapid and extensive occupation of remote islands across the world during the late Holocene (1500BC to AD1500). This movement almost doubled the reach of humanity across the surface of the planet. Its impetus remains obscure but a study of the different ways in which oceanic dispersal was manifested in the Indian and Pacific Oceans is beginning to reveal the reasons and mechanisms behind the process.
