Peter John Frazer Coutts was an Australian archaeologist who was first director of the Victoria Archaeological Survey (VAS), the precursor to the Heritage Branch of Aboriginal Affairs Victoria.
==Early life and education==
Peter Coutts was educated at the University of Melbourne in electrical engineering but was later a post-graduate student in the School of General Studies at the Australian National University. He undertook research on Aboriginal settlement at Wilsons Promontory (Vic) in which he excavated several test pits in shell middens from which several radiocarbon dates were obtained. His work is interesting in its pioneering use of computers to analyse data from the sites. The results of the research were published in a Masters thesis and later by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies.〔Coutts, P. J. F. (Peter J. F.) 1967, The archaeology of Wilson's Promontory,Unpublished MS thesis, ANU, Coutts, Peter J. F 1970, Archaeology of Wilson's Promontory Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies, c1970, Canberra, ACT.〕
After concluding his research at ANU, Coutts enrolled as a postgraduate student at the University of Otago, New Zealand, where he made a significant contribution to the development of historical archaeology in New Zealand.〔Smith, Ian W.G. 1991. The Development of Historical Archaeology in New Zealand 1921 - 1990. ''Australian Historical Archaeology'' 9:6-13.〕 His Ph.D research focused on the period of contact between the Maori and the European settlers, typically sealers and whalers.〔Coutts, Peter, John Frazer, 1972 The emergence of the Foveaux Strait Māori from prehistory: a study of culture contact. Unpublished PhD. thesis University of Otago〕 It is clear from his published works that his research interests in historical archaeology were very broad, with a particular interest in the archaeology of buildings.〔Coutts, P.J.F. 1977 'Old Buildings Tell Tales', World Archaeology 9(2):200-2 19〕
