In this issue of Ancient Origins Magazine (History, Mystery and Science) : Some of us are self-confessed island lovers, hooked on the idyllic vision of island living, while others fear the dark truths that may lie beneath the deceiving quaintness of island settings. But whatever our feeling, human beings, and even our ancient hominin ancestors, have been obsessed by islands and their mysterious, haunting charm since our time began.
In this issue, we dive into the puzzles of island life: mind-blowing seafaring abilities and ancient navigation, legends of floating islands and a mysterious hobbit species that once populated an island in Indonesia. Like any sea tale worth its salt, we encounter the bizarre and downright dangerous behavior of a pack of mutineers stranded on a remote island in the Pacific. And then there is the world-famous Easter Island that is yet to give up its secrets.
