Workers at Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor recently discovered a skull thought to be that of a Japanese pilot from the 1941 attack that drew the United States into World War II. Researchers say items around the skull — included a bottle of Coca-Cola — date back to the 1940s. One archaeologist says he is 75 percent sure the skull belongs to a 1941 Japanese pilot. This would be the first discovery of Japanese remains at Pearl Harbor since World War II, making it an incredible discovery.
