Speaker information

Professor Sue Hamilton, UCL Institute of Archaeology

Easter Island is famous for its colossal statues (moai), which were quarried and sculptured c. AD 1200–1500 and are the product of a prehistoric society. Study of this society has focused on its demise, but the neglected mystery is why the statues were put up in the first place.
