After nearly 300 years the mystery of the whereabouts of a campsite of a marooned Scottish sailor who is said to have inspired the fictional castaway Robinson Crusoe has now been solved. Archaeologists have finally found the campsite of Alexander Selkirk whose real life experiences stuck on a desert island inspired Daniel Defoe to create his imaginary experiences in the famous masterpiece novel Robinson Crusoe. In 1704 Selkirk became marooned on a small tropical Argentinean island in the Pacific Ocean 470 miles west of Chile for more than four years. He was finally rescued in 1709.
