|Feature Name:||Ship Rock|
|Category:||Alaska physical, cultural and historic features|
|Description:||off NE coast of Umnak I. in Umnak Pass, 2 mi. S of Pustoi I. and 15 mi. SE of Fort Glenn, Aleutian Islands.|
|History:||Translation from the Russian "K(amen) Korabl" (Tebenkov, 1852, map 25, dated 1849). Captain Lutke (1836, p. 302), calls it "Tanghinakh," possibly from the Aleut word "tangidak," which, according to R. H. Geoghegan, means "islet or small island," a name which also applies to Pustoi Island. Although Ship Rock is surrounded by treacherous riptides and currents that make boat landings almost impossible, Hrdlicka (1945, p. 182, 323-329), Smithsonian Institution, excavated here in 1937. He found mummified remains of the "pre-Aleut * * *" which had not been disturbed and showed" no trace of white man's influence * * *."|
