Coral of Kosrae - The ruins of Lelu
Zoe Richards has just come back from an outing to Kosrae, Micronesia, where she observed the diversity of corals. This article will share her experience with the old and intriguing Lelu remains. Kosrae is a mysterious old civilisation known as Lelu, whose relation to the sea is unique in the world.
Well-known as the old Pacific Ocean capitol, Delu evolved in the six hundred years before the 1250-1850s. It is also equipped with cut off pyramidal graves where monarchs and high chieftains were bury. It is not known how the town was constructed and how the basaltic Megalites were transported from their remote stone pits over ground and sea and built there.
When I was a professional in the field of biology, I was intrigued when I recently discovered that it was used for the building of Lelu and especially for the building of the holy graves. The story says that the dead bodies were temporarily working points and that the king's bone was removed from the tomb and secondary dug in a pit on near Lelu-Re.
All the corals used to build the old town would have been huge, because outside the Insaru area corals were used to paving streets, to build composite and sewer barriers, to build a more than 3m high and over 1km long sea wall and to dump over 180,000 square metres of property.
I and my co-worker Dr. Jean-Paul Hobbs have just come back from an exploration to Kosrae (funded by the Australian Museum Foundation). Supported by Mr. Paliknoa Sigrah (Lelu Ruins Association), Mr. Berlin Sigrah (Kosrae Preservation Society), Osamu and Marston (Kosrae Conservation and Safety Organisation) and Ben (Kosrae Village Resort) we investigated the cemeteries.
In addition, we have gathered reef corals from three graves to obtain accurate data using sophisticated radio-carbon datation analysis (Th/U). Today, the Lelu remains are of global importance because they contain important information about the habits and practices of old Kosraenian civilisation before contacts with Europe. They also have the double purpose of studying historical ecological and palaeoclimatology.
There is a commitment from the locals to protect the old remains and to ensure that prospective generation learns about their own heritage.
