Rapa Nui (which is the name offered to Easter Island by its very first occupants) is the territory of Chile and is located in the southerly Pacific Sea. And also it is so, so far that you can quickly consider it among one of the most distant position on the world's map. It lies 1,200 miles away from Pitcairn, which is its closest next-door neighbor.
– What's the major key of the sculptures?
Many statues (834 out of 887) were carved from the material called tuff which is, in fact, compressed ashes. Curiously, all the sculptures except one team face inland. It indicates their backs are counted on the sea. Probably the factor for that was the idea that the sculptures were the protectors of the villagers that's why they ignored the negotiation. The only sculptures not suitable into this pattern can be discovered at Ahu Akivi, a spiritual location for the people of Rapa Nui.
– Theories concerning just how the sculptures had been moved.
One of the most popular ones amongst the lovers of enigmas was the idea that the statues had actually been produced as well as moved by aliens. Yet even if you such as this concept, we are sorry to unmask it. The rock the statuaries were built from stems from the island itself. The native home of a lot of the material was an extinct volcano positioned in the north-east of Easter Island and also not another planet.

At the very least 19 percent of the land could be covered with the fields of wonderful potatoes that used to be the main source of food for the populace. What is even more, the islanders eaten quite a great deal of seafood and also fish.
– Why did people on Easter Island disappear?
Initially, it was believed that the factor for such a decline of the populace was an ecocide. The citizens eliminated huge woodlands and hand trees making extra room for moving the sculptures around in addition to farming. They believed the trees were going to expand back fast sufficient. It was a misleading principle. The deterioration of the setting resulted in hunger. And also this, subsequently, resulted in wars as well as cannibalism.
Nowadays, however, such a concept has been confirmed wrong. First off, Rapa Nui citizens appeared to be very talented farming engineers. They purposely fed the areas with the volcanic rock. In fact, one more research has actually shown that people had actually been surviving the island for lots of centuries. As well as the population just began to lower when Europeans began visiting.
