Welcome to Trobriand Islands
In 1914 a young anthropologist called Bronsilaw Malinowski set sail for the impossibly remote Trobriand archipelago. When WWI broke out, he suddenly found himself cut off from the outside world and, being an Austrian Pole in a British-controlled area, unable to leave. The story goes that not being sure which side he was on, he spent the next three years immersed in his fieldwork. On his return, that fieldwork bore fruit as one of the most famous and influential books in anthropology, The Argonauts of the Western Pacific.
