Historical Overview of The Solomon Islands
The Spanish navigator, Alvaro de Mendana de Neyra, visited the region in 1568, and gave the Solomon Islands their name.
Two hundred years later, the northern islands were explored by Louis Antoine de Bougainville.
Although geographically speaking, Bougainville and Buka are part of the Solomon Islands; politically, they are a part of Papua New Guinea.
At the end of the nineteenth century, the Germans controlled the northern Solomons, while the British declared a protectorate over the central and southern Solomons.
Bougainville and Buka were transferred to the British in 1900.
The Japanese occupied most of the Solomons during World War II, with heavy fighting on and around Guadalcanal.
Solomon Islands gained independence from Britain, on July 7th, 1978.
Guadalcanal is the largest island; where the capital Honiara is situated.
