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 artifacts of Polynesian workmanship were discovered.
