Potentially the first mariners of Europe made their way from the mainland of Greece to the island of Crete 130,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found stone tools that indicate they traveled over the Mediterranean Sea on a raft. This song tells their tale.
On the 17th of July 2014, my friends TheFirstMarinersExpeditions.com re-enacted that original journey on a raft they built using stone age methods and tools. This solo ukelele and voice performance features that very raft, docked in Crete the day after they completed the 100 kilometer trip across open sea from Kythera.
