The archaeology of community approach was initiated at Minanha in 1998. During the first eight years of the project our research was concentrated in the epicentral court complex. These investigations were aimed at developing a sequence for the rise and fall of the Minanha royal court, which we now know existed for a relatively brief period spanning the 8th century. In 2006 we began Phase II of the project. This research was designed to generate a balanced understanding of the Minanha community through an examination of the support population. Some preliminary insights from the Phase II investigations will be presented in this paper.
