Fiji has been inhabited since the second millennium BC and was settled first by Austronesians
and later by Melanesians, with some Polynesian influences. Europeans visited Fiji from the 17th century,
and, after a brief period as an independent kingdom, the British established the Colony of Fiji in 1874. (Source: Wikipedia)
