A pottery style linked to the ancient Lapita culture has been found on Anuta Island, which has been inhabited at least since 1,000 to 600 BC.
Anuta pots were plain jar and bowl shapes and lacked the elaborate Lapita dentine stamped decorations.
Mortars and pestles made from wood and stone are still used to prepare taro and nut puddings.
Stone mortars were made from river boulders on Nggatokae Island in the Western Solomons.
