Then the three explorers wrecked on white island for over 120 years ago, their fate has been a mystery. If the spots in the fabric turns out to be blood, it might be a piece of the puzzle as to why they died.
the Samples have now been sent to a laboratory in Rotterdam to be further investigated. Uusmas research is done in cooperation with the Grenna museum.
