    The monumental statues of Easter Island, both so magisterial and so forlorn, gazing out in their imposing rows over the island’s barren landscape, have been the source of great mystery ever since the island was first discovered by Europeans on Easter Sunday 1722. How could the ancient people who inhabited this tiny speck of land, the most remote in the vast expanse of the Pacific islands, have built such monumental works?

    Story
    If you could sum up The Statues That Walked in three words, what would they be?

    Hunt and Lipo presents a compelling new theory about the history of Easter Island.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The available historical sources clearly summarised and the conclusions drawn are clear and logical.


    Any additional comments?

    A must for everyone with a more than passing interest in Easter Island and Polynesia.
