Easter Island: Lost Ancient High Technology
Evidence Part 1 of 5
Easter Island is one of the remotest populated islands on earth. It is most famous for the 900 or more huge stone heads called Moai which are only found here. But did you know that each of these Moai are in fact complete bodies, often buried up to their necks? The enigma surrounding these statues, as well as other features on the island is that there appear to have been two distinct populations in the distant past. One, which were and are the Polynesian people, and a mysterious race called the Long Ears who perhaps were the first inhabitants and possibly the makers of the largest of the Moai.
Is there evidence that South Americans visited and lived on Easter Island hundreds or even thousands of years before the first arrival of Europeans in the 18th century? Why were all of the trees cut down?
