Civilization Lapita (of the name of an archeological site of New Caledonia) is an original civilization, in particular for its decorations with pottery, which seems to be appeared on the islands and the coasts in the north of the New Guinea-News-Guinea. It is associated to the people Austronésien S which were going to conquer the distant Oceania starting from the close Oceania, at the origin of the linguistic group océanien. The Carbon dating reveals that the oldest Lapita sites go back to approximately 3.500 years before the current time, that is to say 1500 before J. - C.
The parallel with the island of Laputa, invented by Jonathan Swift for the Gulliver's Travels published in 1721, is only one coincidence since the first Europeans arrive to New Caledonia only in 1774.
