Thor Heyerdahl (1914–2002) Norwegian ethnographer & adventurer with a background in biology, zoology, botany, & geography. In 1937-38, he & his wife, Liv, spent a year on the volcanic island of Fatu-Hiva in the Marquesas. He became notable for his Kon-Tiki expedition in 1947, in which he sailed 5,000 mi across the Pacific Ocean in a hand-built raft from South America to the Tuamotu Islands. The expedition was designed to demonstrate that ancient people could have made long sea voyages
Flea Bottom is what the slum area of King's Landing is called. A down-trodden area of town. It has pot-shops along the alleys where one can get a 'bowl o' brown.' The buildings lean over the narrow allyes, they almost touch.
