Location Rapa Nui, Easter Island, Polynesia, S. America
Built unknown (approx.. 600 AD)
When Easter Island was discovered in 1722 another inexplicable site was revealed. Hundreds of gigantic stone men, MOAI GIANTS, finished and unfinished, standing and lying spread around the entire island were found. Thirty feet of height and up to ten tons of weight for the smaller figures were common.
Some connection with the ancient culture of the South American coast and the Bolivian culture is suggested, but a volcano, which had possibly interrupted the gigantic enterprise, leaves the mystery unresolved until today.
