The truth about Easter Islands

We all know that the Easter island heads have bodies – that’s not a mystery at all. But how did the easter island population build hundreds of statues? Scientists have recently solved this mystery and discovered where these people disappeared to and why.

For many decades, people’s minds have been occupied with the mystery of Easter Island. A remote piece of volcanic soil, far away in the Pacific Ocean… But our planet hosts thousands of such lonely islands, what is so particular about this one?

The mystery is concealed not in the island itself but giant stone statues covering it. Who created the world-famous huge stone heads? Did they serve any specific purpose? Where did their creators arrive from and where did they disappear?

Well, it seems the answer is finally just around the corner!
