Episode Summary

Ghost of the Island Queen
Scotty travels to the middle of the Pacific to investigate an extraordinary burial in the long-deserted village of Ngerieleb on the island of Koror, in the Republic of Palau. Buried beneath a raised stone slab weighing more than 1,000 pounds, the skeleton of a 50-year-old woman was discovered lying in an elaborate crypt lined with slabs of coral. Who was this important woman? Was she a queen or priestess? Why was she buried in this ornate crypt … and then forgotten? And why was this entire village abandoned soon after her death?moreless
