“I went to New Guinea in 1962 as an Education Officer (‘chalkie’) and asked to be posted to Telefomin where I remained until 1965. I returned to Telefomin to do field research for short periods in 1967, 1968, 1969 and for a year in 1972-73. Then as Curator of Anthropology at the PNG National Museum 1980-83, I spent a quarter of my time in the field – Middle and Lower Sepik, New Ireland and New Britain. While at the South Australian Museum, I revisited New Ireland and New Britain in 1992/93, Vanuatu in 1997 and New Ireland and the Torricelli Mountains of the West Sepik in 2002.This presentation will illustrate some of the information I gained about the people and their culture during each of these field trips.” (Barry Craig)
