You know Moais? If not then probably you’ve been sleeping and dreaming Batman in your Anthropology class, these are these huge monolithic human structures that were carved from rocks and were mysteriously lined along a coast at Easter Island – it’s this Island that I’ll probably dare to go if I’ll get drugged otherwise, my god, can the Chinese build a causeway going here? Yes, it’s somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
For the longest time believed to be from years between 1250 and 1500, the mystery of how these Moais were brought down kilometers away from the quarry where the big rocks were and believed to be crafted there remained a mystery among scientists, [you can get raw and instant information about moais at Wikipedia.org if you're interested to]. Yeah, as obviously, early settlers of this island were small, petite and how in the world they were able to transport 887 statues weighing at the most 82 tons. Archeologists thought it to be remarkable and astonishing feat.
But archeologists didn’t end at simply putting awe to this ancient achievement;
“A 10-foot tall, 5 ton moai replica ‘walks’ as three teams maneuver strong ropes. Archeologists led the experiment to test their theory about how the ancient Easter Island statues moved.” And just in case you’re curious take a look at this video.
