There is no mysteries on Easter island. Those were not-smart theetless natives  who destroy their enviroment and in the end themselves.
Moai is monument for human stupidity.

Oh only one mystery there. What settler who cut last tree think at that moment?

My favourite historical mystery are why history in last 12000 years was writen differently, what cause civilization to rise and favourite one is collapses of civilizations which I did study for some years.

I'll beat Harte to the punch here:

Mine is the celebrated disappearance of the English colonists at the second Roanoke Island site. It's 'History's Greatest Mystery', after all.

There's also the mysterious man-made pyramidal mountain I discovered in Alaska.

And the True History of Our Past Basset Masters (as available in my soon to be self-published book that contains nothing but totally new, mind-blowing facts that will cause all of history to be re-written, We Were As Fleas on Their Backs ™.)

What about the Rongo Rongo language? That is still a mystery.

Quote

Rongorongo is a system of glyphs discovered in the 19th century on Easter Island that appears to be writing or proto-writing. Numerous attempts at decipherment have been made, none successfully.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Its created after Europeans set foot on Island. Probably because those toothless natives start loosing oralist due their own stupidity and because they were being taken as slaves so to preserve their tradition they invented it.

I bet there is nothing ancient behind their script exept some Polynesian Brothers Grimm,

Fetish? No. Just due appreciation. Someone has to be primed and ready to serve them when come back.

I have lots of favourite historical mysteries, but the greatest is what happened after the crucifixion of Jesus?

Did he die? Did the Templars find an ossuary with his bones? Did he survive? Where did he go - to southern France, Persia, India?

According to the apostle John, after the resurrection;

"Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." -- John 21:25

Too bad he didn't write it down anyway.
