Easter Island collapse was much later

Recommended Posts

"The island of Rapa Nui is well-known for its elaborate ritual architecture, particularly its numerous statues (moai) and the monumental platforms that supported them (ahu).

"A widely-held narrative posits that construction of these monuments ceased sometime around 1600, following a major societal collapse.

"“Our research flies in the face of this narrative,” said Carl Lipo, an anthropologist at Binghamton University."
