I just read about a group of scientists who think they have unraveled the "secrets of Easter Island."

The statues, called moai, are pretty impressive, but, when you see them next to something else so that you can judge actual size, their impressiveness increases tenfold!
I suppose these new theories make our books on Easter Island obsolete, but, I'm certain there won't be anything new for a while yet. Until then, look for these:
Arnold, Caroline. Easter Island. [J 996.1 ARN]
Meyer, Miriam Weiss. The Blind Guards of Easter Island. [J 996 MEY]
