"It is the year 1526. The four ships of the Loaisa expedition have just entered the Pacific from the Strait of Magellan on their way to the East Indies for a cargo of spices. A storm blows up. The ships are separated. One, the caravel San Lesmes with 50 or so men on board is never seen again ... The new book traces the crew of the San Lesmes and their descendants to various atolls of the Tuamotu Archipelago, to the Society and Austral Islands -- even to distant Easter Island and New Zealand. It argues that the last prehistoric settlement of New Zealand was made when some of the San lesmes crew came upon the North Island in trying to return to Spain from the vicinity of Tahiti by sailing along the latitude of the Cape of Good Hope. It claims that many Maori of today are descended from them. The book tells also how a number of present-day Easter islanders with no known non-Easter Island ancestors have been found to be carriers of certain genes that are peculiar to Europeans and especially common among Basques. In a nutshell, The Lost Caravel Re-explored throws unexpected new light on the prehistory of several widely separated Polynesian islands and challenges many long held views on that subject ..."--Back cover

Kon-Tiki revisited by Robert Langdon( Book )

In 1526, ships of a Spanish expedition entered the Pacific from the Straits of Magellan. The San Lesmes, a caravel of eighty tonnes with a crew of fifty-three, was separated from the fleet by a storm and never seen again. Four centuries later, in 1929, four iron cannons were found on the reef of the Amanu atoll, French Polynesia. The find created little interest until 1975, when Robert Langdon argues in The lost caravel that the cannons were from the San Lesmes, the crew had survived and intermarried, and that vital aspects of the wider development of Pacific Island communities needed to be readdressed. In Kon-Tiki revisited Langdon makes his final outstanding contribution to our knowledge of Polynesian origins

The seventh circle : my seven years of hell in Afghanistan's most notorious prison by Robert Langdon( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
'I was arrested on Thursday 9th July 2009. On Wednesday I'd quit my job, killed a man and set his body on fire. I was sentenced to death. I'm not a good man, but I am an honest one. This is my story.' Former soldier Rob Langdon was working as a security contractor in Afghanistan when he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death in a case that would have been ruled a clear miscarriage of justice in the British legal system. His sentence was commuted to 20 years in jail, and he served his time in Kabul's most notorious prison, Pul-e-Charkhi, described as the world's worst place to be a westerner. Rob was there for seven years, the longest sentence served by a westerner since the fall of the Taliban, and every one of those 2,500 days was an act of extraordinary survival in a jail filled with Afghanistan's most dangerous extremists and murderers. In 2016 Robert was pardoned and returned to Australia
