Rapa Nui islanders survived by building strong communities around limited resources. Chile's Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is famous for its giant monumental statues, called moai, built by early inhabitants some 800 years ago. The islanders likely chose the statues' locations based on the availability of fresh water sources, according to a recent paper in PLOS One. Scholars have puzzled over the moai on Easter Island for decades, pondering their cultural significance, as well as how a Stone Age culture managed to carve and transport statues weighing as much as 92 tons.

Easter Island is home to 887 monolithic carvings, called moai statues. Lipo noted that the issue of why the monoliths had been built has always been a central mystery about the civilization which used to inhabit the island. The moai were built by the Rapa Nui, who were native to the island, somewhere. Moai at Ahu Tongariki by the Rapa Nui people, Easter Island, Eastern Polynesia, Chile. It would be logical to expect that the statues should all be placed in spots where they would be easy to see, especially to outsiders, but that’s not necessarily the case. Using them as markers of vital natural resources, however, helps explain a lot about their placement.

In their new book, The Statues that Walked: Unravelling the Mystery of Easter Island, to be published in June, Dr. .Dr Lipo, aided by anthropologist Sergio Rapu, the island's first native governor under Chilean rule, thinks he has found a way around this, with more rocking and less shuffling.

In their new book, The Statues that Walked: Unravelling the Mystery of Easter Island, to be published in June, Dr Lipo and Professor Hunt present their evidence that Polynesian colonists arrived in 1200, up to 800 years later than the conventional theory claims, and immediately modified the environment with slash-and-burn agriculture. Defenders of the old theory are not taking this lying down.

This 2014 paperback edition is packed with information, photos, and illustrations. I have serveral books on Easter Island, but this is a valuable resource, and a favorite. There are lots of books and videos about Easter Island. After much reading and watching several movies, this book was the 'last' on my list - and a welcomed surprise! It ties everything together. You can see photos and illustrations with explanations about the island's history. If you want more than a mere overview, and are really "into" learning more, this book is for you.

Most experts disagree with Heyerdahl's theory that the Rapanui came from South America. But this is still a very interesting book. Lots of photos and very well written.

This is a fantastic book. The most interesting part discussed the early Easter Island statues and faces, similar to the bird images in Göbekli Tepe. Although Göbekli Tepe had not been discovered at the time the book was published, it shows an interconnection between global societies and, at the very least, bring into question the date of origin of the statues and carvings on Easter Island.
