A Possible Medicine-Making Stone in the Upper Tofol Drainage, Kosrae, Micronesia
The jungles of Kosrae continue to shield vestiges of the island' ancient heritage. Hidden within its verdure are the remnants of stone villages roadways, fortresses, and even more mundane activity sites where one can sharpen tools, make medicine, and take a brief respite en-route from somewhere to someplace else. During the summer of 2004, several archaeological sites were identified within a single square kilometer of the upper Tofol drainage, on the eastern shores of Kosrae. Many of these sites displayed a range and association of features that have not been recorded in the archaeological record for the island, at least not before this.
