TITLE: Ancient bones in honor of the goddess Sinlaku : new findings on the island of Kosrae, Eastern Micronesia / Adam Thompson
AUTHOR: Thompson, Adam
DESCRIPTION: pp.43-51 ; 28 cm.
NOTES: In: Rapa Nui Journal, May 2016 v.30:1. pp.43-51.
NOTES: "Human remains were foundon the island of Kosrae in a region formerly known as a place of worship for the ancient goddess Sinlaku. These burials were found to be quite unusual in comparison to previously documented burial patterns on the island. They provide the opportunity to study the changing ritual practices on the island around 300 BP (AD 1650).
NOTES: Historic ethnographic accounts by the German explorer, Sarfert, from 1908-1910 provide context for religious beleifs that are otherwise extremely difficult to assess within an archaeological context. The oral history of the island tells of the arrival of a foreign group to the island that may align with the onset of these new burial patterns."
