Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past

Norfolk Island has a history of convict settlements. This picture depicts some of the ruins from that time.

After the end of the 2nd convict settlement, Queen Victoria granted the island to the descendants of the Bounty mutineers. Many of their families still live there today.
