The Pitcairn Islands (Pitkern: Pitkern Ailen), officially named the Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean. The islands are a British overseas territory, the last remaining in the Pacific. Only Pitcairn Island the second largest in the group, is inhabited.

Upon arrival at Pitcairn Island in January 1790, the crew of the ship Bounty discovered the island had previously been inhabited. Many relics of a Polynesian civilization were found scattered around the island. Roughly hewn stone gods, which guarded sacred sites, representations of animals and men carved into cliff faces, burial sites yielding human skeletons, and earth ovens, stone adzes, gouges, and other artefacts of Polynesian workmanship were discovered.
