This is a culmination of years-long work as a journalist on Saipan, compiling news reports and regular features about the islands, and adding fresh takes to issues.

Periods of Marianas History

For this site, this reporter chose to focus on three periods for the meantime: (1) Prehistory or Pre-Contact Period (Pre-Latte, Transitional Pre-Latte, and Latte Periods); (2) Contact  or Colonial Period (Spanish, German and Japanese); (3) World War II. As this writer is neither a historian nor an archaeologist by training, your input is highly appreciated should you find errors of fact.
