The Easter Island Enigma

Shrouded in mystery, Rapa Nui - also known as Easter Island - was discovered 1,000 years ago by a group of Polynesians.

One of the world’s most remote inhabited islands, Easter Island is located 2,200 miles off the coast of Chile.

Best known for the island’s massive stone figurines, some weighing nearly 14 tons, no archaeologist has been able to answer the purpose behind these sculptures or who these ancient craftsmen were.
