History of the Marshall Islands The Marshall Islands is a republic of 29 atolls and 5 coral islands The islands are one of the four main groups that make up Micronesia The nearest neighbor to the Marshalls are the Federated States of Micronesia Theyre only 26 populated islands in the Marshalls because a lot of the islands are too small to support many people There are two roughly parallel chains of islands that make up the western Ralik group and the eastern Ratak group Now that you know what and where the Marshall Islands are Ill explain the history The very early people of the Marshalls had no written language so it is very hard to predict what went on The only early history has been handed down from generation to generation in the form of songs and we can also get some facts from the folklore and legends One thing that they do know is that powerful chiefs ruled these large civilizations able to move such large stones to build temples and cities They must have been somewhat advanced because they were able to build huge walls that were probably there to enclose a city These walls weighed many tons and were 20 ft long and even some walls they have found to be 40 ft high Archaeologists are still puzzled of what kind of machinery they had to move such large stones The real knowledge we know about the Marshall Islands history began in the early sixteenth century The sea going Europeans were trying to find sources of the Spice Islands that were in very large demand in Europe English Dutch Spanish and Portuguese sea captains were all sailing around on their hunt for riches One of the first people we know of to definitely land on the Marshall Islands during this time
