The Riddle of the Pacific

כריכה קדמית
Adventures Unlimited Press, 1997 - 312 עמודים
First published in London in 1924, this rare classic has been one of the most difficult books on Pacific archaeology to find. Out-of-print for over 70 years, this highly illustrated volume is a scholarly study of such far-out topics as a lost continent in the Pacific, ancient writing in the Pacific, the stonework of Easter Islands, megalithic roads on Rarotonga and remote Malden Island, connections between New Zealand and Easter Island, ancient tattoo customs, and much more.
