Archaeologists find unique settlement on Tinian Island

In the Marianas Islands, two visiting archaeologists from the Australian National University have unearthed evidence on Tinian of what could be the first remote distance island settlement.

Their investigations started two years ago, when Doctor Michael Carson and his wife Doctor Hsiao-chun Hung found human remains near "The House of Targa" site on Tinian Island.

They have returned to this unique archaeological site and are focussing on the remains of a house structure.
