Researchers Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo test a theory how the ancient Easter Islanders may have used ropes to ‘walk’ the Moai statues to their platforms. The Moai, or ‘Easter Island heads’ were created by Polynesians between 1250 CE – 1500 CE, average height of the Moai is 13.3 feet [4m] and weigh about 13.8 tons [12.5 tonnes] each. Mystery of Easter Island will air on PBS this fall and take closer look at Rapa Nui aka Easter Island.
