Lynn Dana­her shares this invi­ta­tion with you…

Due to our long-stand­ing friend­ships with some of the res­i­dents, we have been invit­ed by the Pit­cairn islanders them­selves to spend a month on Pit­cairn explor­ing pet­ro­glyph sites and con­duct­ing foren­sic archaeology. 

We will be the first to test for DNA at a his­tor­i­cal bur­ial site in Adamstown, of some of the orig­i­nal muti­neers.  We antic­i­pate 2 teams of 2 weeks each, max 6 par­tic­i­pants per team, plus guides, researcher and foren­sic anthropologist.

This is a true remote expe­di­tion into a rugged dif­fi­cult place with lim­it­ed ameni­ties.  It involves fly­ing to Man­gare­va from Tahi­ti and tak­ing a small ship to Pit­cairn via a 32-hour pas­sage embark­ing via a orig­i­nal style long boat thru surf. 

Must be fit and have a pos­i­tive atti­tude for adven­ture.  This an Expe­di­tion not a Tour!

All expens­es are cov­ered from Tahi­ti; hotel, air­fare to Man­gare­va, ship trans­port to and from Pit­cairn, all food, lodg­ing & trans­port on the island, plus, all nec­es­sary tools and pro­fes­sion­al guides.

If inter­est­ed, please con­tact Lynn for fur­ther infor­ma­tion and an appli­ca­tion to join this unique expedition.
