Corks on Brass Chains......
« on: November 04, 2013, 12:35:10 AM »

This topic is in conjunction with the final Fiji Bone Report by Martin Moleski. Martin describes in the report as that of Gallagher finding parts of a shoe, a sextant, and corks on brass chains. I'm really curious to know what the corks on brass chains were used for during that time period. 



On May 15, TIGHAR sent two of its members to Suva, Fiji, to continue the search for the remains of a human skeleton, a sextant box, parts of a man’s shoe, parts of a woman’s shoe, and corks on brass chains that had been collected by Gerald B. Gallagher on Gardner Island (now known as Nikumaroro) in 1940 and then sent to Suva for analysis in 1941.

The "Fiji Bone Report" to which you refer is in the Ameliapedia.

It may be a little hard to see, depending on your monitor settings, but there are lots of "blue words" in that report.

Each one of those blue words is a link on which you may click for more information.

In this case, the word "cork" in the Fiji Bone Report takes you to "Corks found on Nikumaroro," which, in turn, makes some suggestions about where the corks might have originated.

N.B.: You, too, can learn how to make links that others can follow.  It is a really cool feature of the internet.  It is one of the things that distinguishes it from a book.  That way, people don't have to use any of the search methods provided on the site to find out what you mean by "Fiji Bone Report."
