wiw vol 31 Mystery of Easter Island, Nova

2012- 52 minutes
Streaming Netflix

Easter Island and its giant statues have mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. "Nova" explores recent controversial claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the ancient islanders.

We have watched quite a few documentaries on Easter Island but this one is really fascinating because it explores how they may have moved the statues. It's always been a bit of a mystery how thy moved these enormous statues. But after watching this, I believe they have cracked it. Great watch.
