From IGN: Skull Islandů a legend to those who dared brave the waters off the coast of Sumatra. Existing for centuries outside man's known world, some said the island was lost in time; inhabited by creatures of a bygone era. Scientists said the island was doomed, a victim of its own natural, geological forces. Fortunately, one year before its demise, an expeditionary team known as Project Legacy was created. Led by Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor, and funded by prominent universities and private organizations, they set out to explore the island and document their findings. The expedition's heretofore unseen journals, photographs, illustrations and detailed notes will soon be released to the public with the publication of World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island.
