Maruku is the home of the historic finding by Archaeologist Prof. Peter Schmidt (University of Florida), that carbon steel was invented by the ancient Haya people/tribe of this region in 100AD, centuries before it was being made in modern Europe.
Maruku is the origin of the reign of the 16th-century King Rugomora Mahe, who is the father of all rulers of the eight Buhaya Kingdoms of the western shores of Lake Victoria.
One of the islands in sight of Maruku Beach is Bumbire Island, where the English explorer John Hanning Speke landed during his successful search for the source of the River Nile (1858).
