Drawing of Kealakekua Bay, 1779 (MFQ 1/566)

1. Look at Source 1. This drawing shows the two ships Resolution and Discovery at anchor with the cutter (a ship’s boat for carrying stores or passengers) alongside and a village in the background.

  • Spot the ship’s cutter.
  • Find the ship missing its foremast.
  • Look at the buildings in the village. How many people might be living there?
