The ‘Walking’ Statues of Rapa Nui Easter Island)

Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, is world-renowned for its mysterious giant statues. Nearly 1000 of the statues exist, provoking generations of questions on how these statues came to be carved and moved into position. Drawing on nearly two decades of field research, Dr. Hunt will show us how these multi-ton megalithic giants were transported and placed, leaving us with a better understanding of many aspects of Easter Island’s remarkable prehistory.

Dr. Hunt is the co-author of The Statues that Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island, and his work was the focus of a National Geographic Magazine cover story in July 2012 and a NOVA-National Geographic TV documentary that first aired on PBS in November 2012.

Please join us in uncovering the answer to this fascinating mystery!
