    Easter Islands, Famous Heads Have Long Been Underestimated

    We all know those famous heads on the easter islands. Now a team of archaeologists had the idea to dig one out to see how they are rooted. It turns out most of them was overlooked so far, since it was in the ground. Here you see a photo of the dig :

    I am researching for some articles on the dig, as soon as i find some, i will put them in here
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???

    Here is a link to a site with good info and lots of interesting photo's.

    http://www.eisp.org/


    I also found this site. http://www.lost-civilizations.net/ea...s-history.html
    In 1722, a Dutch explorer, Jacob Roggeveen, sighted and visited the island. This happened to be on a Sunday, Easter Sunday to be precise, and the name stuck: Easter Island (Isla de Pascua in Spanish).

    What he discovered on Easter Island were three distinct groups of people, Dark skinned, Red skinned, and very Pale skinned People with red hair"
    I always find these ''lost worlds'' really interesting.

    I cannot understand why the new dig should be necessary.

    Archaeological work was carried out by Thor Heyerdahl in the 1950s and reported on at length in his book Aku Aku, a copy of which I have. The most important fact established, in my opinion, was that the earlier heads must have been sculpted and planted by the pre-Inca race from Tiahuanacu/Bolivia.

    A local artist and craftsman from this area makes 4foot replicas of those heads out of similar stone and places them in different spots around businesses and fields by the roads, So eveyone nearby can feel like they're visiting Easter Island once in a while.
