The eastern Caroline Islands, like the Marshall and Gilbert islands, were probably first settled from the area of the New Hebrides (now Vanuatu) and Fiji sometime before 1000 bce. Archaeological and linguistic evidence suggests that the earliest migrants worked their way up the chain of islands to the east and gradually spread westward from the Marshalls. Pottery dating to about the 1st century ce has been found in Chuuk, and artifacts of similar antiquity have been unearthed in other islands in the east.
