Three hundred years after Alexander Selkirk, the castaway who was the inspiration for the fictional Robinson Crusoe, was marooned on an island off the coast of Chile, archaeologists believe that they have unearthed evidence of his campsite.
Selkirk, a sailor born in Fife in 1676, was stranded in 1704 on the island of Más a Tierra.
The evidence uncovered at Aguas Buenas corroborates the stories of Alexander Selkirk’s stay on the island.
