Nearly four centuries after Australia's largest mass murder, scientists are still putting together the pieces.

On Sunday, "60 Minutes Australia" will bring viewers along for an exclusive look inside a mysterious place known to some as "Murder Island," according to 9 News.

Previews for the episode, hosted by Liam Bartlett, show archaeologists uncovering new victims as well as clues about their deaths.

The outlet reported that "Murder Island" has a brutal and bloody history, dating back to 1629.

A Dutch ship was allegedly sailing along when it was blown off course, leaving more than 300 passengers and crew members stranded in Western Australia.

Forty people aboard the ship reportedly drowned trying to swim for shore.

In the "60 Minutes Australia" clip, Bartlett reveals that those who survived weren't home free.

In fact, he claims "being shipwrecked was the least of their worries."

Over 100 survivors of the shipwreck were slaughtered after turning on each other while awaiting rescue on the island, according to 9 News.

In total, 125 men, women and children are believed to have died on the island over the course of three months.

The massacre has been compared to "a real life 'Lord of the Flies.'"

At last, the true story of Murder Island: Bodies of hundreds of men, women and children who were massacred by mutineers are still being found 400 YEARS after their ship crashed into an uninhabited island

In 1629, Batavia crashed off coast of Western Australia on its way to Indonesia

Rebels on board already planned to stage a coup and hierarchy feared mutiny

As tensions escalated, the ship crashed and survivors spilled out onto islands

Mutineers then started killing off anyone who posed a threat to their power

Scientists are still recovering the 125 bodies of those murdered by a brutal gang of rebels hell bent on becoming pirates after their ship crashed into an uninhabited island 400 years ago.

Beacon Island, later named Batavia's Graveyard and nicknamed Murder Island for the atrocity that would occur, was the site of Australia's first and biggest massacre.

Centuries after the shipwreck of the Dutch sailing ship on a tiny Western Australian island, the story of what happened to those who swam ashore remains largely untold.

On October 28, 1628, the Dutch East India Company gave the green light for a ship to set said from Texel in the Netherlands to Batavia, which we now know as Jakarta in Indonesia.

There were 316 people on board, including regular families and children, and soldiers guarded the spices and silver being transported.

Tensions were heightened on board the Batavia, which was named after its intended destination, with a mutiny planned to turn the vessel into a pirate ship.

In order to hatch a take-over plan, rebels sexually assaulted the daughter of a wealthy merchant to provoke a reaction from the hierarchy.

With the mood on both sides of the dispute reaching boiling point on June 4, 1629, the Batavia hit Morning Reef, some 60km off the coast of Western Australia.

There was a desperate scramble as survivors attempted to reach land.

Around 40 people drowned in the chaos, but worse was to come on the small islands surrounding the shipwreck.

After one of the rebels assumed control of the remaining survivors, he and a loyal gang of killers rounded up anyone deemed to be a threat to their power.

Batavia was a ship of the Dutch East Company (VOC).It was built in Amsterdam in 1628

They were raped and murdered by the gang in scenes described by experts as the real Lord of the Flies - a brutal novel which focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous and brutal attempt to govern themselves.

The killings took place on a place we now know as Beacon Island and it became clear barbaric rebels were not reserving their executions for those who threatened them.

Journals from chiefs revealed the mutineers killed more than a hundred people in the month of July.

Among the brutal deaths registered was a baby murdered to stop it crying, a boy decapitated to test the blade of a sword and a family of six butchered for no reason whatsoever.

Those murdered were dumped in mass graves.

On a separate island, a member of the Batavia's hierarchy had established a much more civilised living arrangement, with fresh drinking water and ample food supply.

As the murderous clan and the merchants waited for a rescue ship - one group wanted to be rescued to continue their lives, the other wanted to commandeer the vessel to live a life of piracy on the seas.

Once again, with a raging battle about to erupt, violence was cut short as the Sardam rescue ship appeared.

The commodore took the side of the hierarchy and the mutineers were arrested.

Rebels were rounded up, questioned and tried in a formal court on a nearby island.

To get truth from some of the mutineers, water torture was used, and the sentences were carried out.

Some were hanged, some had limbs cut off and some were taken to Batavia to be executed there.

Dr Al Patterson (pictured right with journalist Liam Bartlett) is working with a team of scientists from Australia and the Netherlands

As they waited to be rescued for over three months, men, women and children were massacred on the island in what archaeologists have since dubbed 'a real life Lord of the Flies'.

Many of the women were raped repeatedly as the mutineers slaughtered all across the island.

Scientists are still uncovering the bodies of 125 men, women and children who made it to the tiny stretch of land, part of the Abrolhos Islands in the Indian Ocean.

In a 60 Minutes segment on Sunday night, the story of the Batavia and her slaughtered crew was detailed.

Dr Patterson told the program the stranded passengers would have had 'no where to go'

'Once the story got out, it would have been an intense experience to be here as those events were going on,' Dr Patterson said.

Scientists from both Australia and the Netherlands don't know just how many bodies are buried under the sand on the island.

As the 60 Minutes crew filmed the segment, another skeleton was unearthed, making it the fifteenth body to be found. 

Those responsible for the bloody massacre were eventually discovered and hanged.
