EXPLORE WITH US

Due to our close historical connections as remote ports of call, and seeking to learn more about our fascinating neighbour, the Rapanui Planetarium, based on Rapa Nui (a.k.a. Easter Island), has applied for approval to study two of Pitcairn's ancient rock art sites within the context of ethnoastronomy, and also to conduct fieldwork at what remains of the first Pitcairn cemetery, abandoned in 1856.

 

Our Preliminary Proposal was approved before the pandemic struck and we are now working on making plans for 2022.

We anticipate a stay of two weeks to a month (your choice) with six to eight participants total, plus our core team of specialists, consisting of an osteo-archaeologist, an ethnoastronomer, an anthropological archaeologist, and an expert Pitcairn historian and rock climber.

Our mission is to explore, discover, and delve into the history of one of the most remote islands in the Pacific.
