Interview Log

As SCP-3939-JP's native language is unidentified, but possesses partial similarity to Old Japanese, the Department of Linguistics has trained it to be able to express itself intelligibly, albeit in a simple manner. The following is an interview regarding the object's origins, translated into English.

Area affected by the Akahoya eruption.

Addendum: It was confirmed that the sediment where SCP-3939-JP was recovered was produced approximately 7300 years ago. Based on the era in which it was produced and the surrounding geography, the object is likely related to the Akahoya eruption that destroyed southern Kyūshū in the early Jōmon period.
