Heyerdahl's pursuit of the truth about human journeys across vast bodies of water began in earnest when he journeyed to the Marquesas Islands in the South Pacific in the early 1930s. This sparked his imagination and sparked his interest in studying the history of early human exploration, resulting in further trips to other regions in the Pacific, including to Easter Island and other Polynesian islands. Heyerdahl's significant career also includes work as a lecturer, compelling writer, and media personality, with numerous publications ranging from scientific books and research papers to travelogues and popular media pieces. By the end of his career, Heyerdahl had championed the idea that the world's earliest civilizations were in fact interconnected, making lasting contributions to the study of human history.

Heyerdahl's long and prestigious career spanned several decades, and he was frequently awarded numerous accolades for his contributions to the sciences and humanities. Amongst these was his induction as a fellow of the British Academy in 1951, and also in the Academy of Sciences of Egypt, as well as being elected a member of the Royal Society of Arts in London in 1965. Heyerdahl died in 2002, leaving behind a rich legacy that forever changed the way we perceive the ancient world and human history. Through his expeditions and writings, Heyerdahl remains a beacon of inspiration to researchers, explorers, and anthropologists around the world, providing invaluable insights into the lives of our ancient ancestors.
