Norwegian author, explorer and ethnographer Thor Heyerdahl was the first to conduct major excavations on Easter Island in the 1950’s. Heyerdahl stated that the most important discovery made by he and his team during their entire expedition was to identify two distinctly separate cultural periods on Easter Island prior to the final period of civil war and destruction. Many visitors had noted that the ahu platforms had been rebuilt, but found no system in the apparent chaos. In the course of their excavations, Heyerdahl’s team discovered a dramatic change in architecture following an intermission between what they termed the early and middle periods. Heyerdahl believed that the early period came to an end long before the middle period began. 1 This corroborates with the ancient oral traditions as stated in part 1 where the Long-ears were credited to have engineered the ahu megalithic platforms that were later used as foundations for the moai.


The middle period construction appears to have begun with the structures in an advanced state of ruin. Those who carried out the repairs did an enormous amount of work, but their techniques and masonry shows neither the technical perfection nor the artistry of the earlier master builders. This was also confirmed at the Orongo ceremonial site where Heyerdahl’s team discovered that the bird-men carvings were a feature of the middle period, when the importance of the sun and the Make-Make masks became less noticeable. Bird-man reliefs on the Orongo cliffs crafted in that period were even found to be carved right across earlier Make-Make masks. 2


The Easter Island moai statues are so iconic that most people have no idea that there exists on the island megalithic megaton mortarless walls made with an ancient high technology to where you can’t even fit a human hair between the stones. This antediluvian ancient technology confounds today’s experts and defies our greatest modern engineering.


Captain Cook and the British expedition of 1774 marveled at the precision stone megalithic masonry on Easter Island. Cook compared these walls to the best in England. He was particularly impressed by the huge wall at Hanga-roa, which unfortunately no longer exists as the blocks were later used to build a new harbor. 3 Many of the oldest megalithic structures that existed along the cliffs that Captain Cook and William J. Thomson described seeing in the 1700s and 1800s have since disappeared into the sea from the pounding ocean surf and landslides. Heyerdahl wrote…

“We discovered a megalithic wall of finely hewn and perfectly fitted blocks during our excavations on the landward side of Ahu Naunau. This buried wall was clearly older than the middle period walls visible above ground. Nothing like it was found on a single island in the whole of Polynesia, but it is typical of megalithic walls of South America. No Polynesian fisherman would have been capable of conceiving, much less building, such a wall, and as it was built in an early period of the settlement of the island, the probability is overwhelming that the inspiration came from the nearest continent to the east. 5

Brien Foerster

After visiting the Easter Island megaliths, professor Camilla Laureani from the Institute of Esthetics of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile said “Ahu Vinapu is an architectonic construction which combines the essential characteristics of the structures in the Altiplano of Peru-Bolivia in a manner so evident that one cannot doubt the arrival on the island of a contingent of these people” 6

In 1923, explorer and author J. Macmillan Brown visited Easter island and later stated The tooling and fitting of cyclopean blocks are exactly the same in Cusco and in Easter Island: both demand the same skill and the same organization of vast armies of labour.” 7


According to biologist, author and explorer Brien Foerster, the most sacred part of the island based on the Rapa-nui oral traditions is the Te Pito Kura, which means navel of light. This is a large stone sphere, 1 metre in diameter, which according to legend was brought to the island by the first King Hotu Matu’a from the original homeland. The four other smaller additional stones were not present in ancient times. 8 Because of its high iron content, the sphere apparently heats up more than other stones on the island and possesses strange magnetic properties that will cause compasses to spin in circles as they are passed over the stone’s surface.

As mentioned in part 2, one of the most famous island legends is that the statues walked or were moved by the use of mana, or mind power, and according to one legend, use was made of a finely crafted stone sphere known as the golden navel or the navel of light, to focus the mana. 9. It is interesting to note, as mentioned in part 1, that when Hotu Matu’a first landed at Akena Bay and his queen shortly after gave birth to a boy for which they named the island Te-Pito-o-te-Henua “The Navel of the World.”

Could this mysterious stone sphere have been part of an ancient high technology that was used on the island in ages past?



Explorer Thor Heyerdahl talks about the startling discovery he made during his excavations on Easter Island in the 1950’s…

We discovered a basalt statue so totally alien to anything found in the Pacific that it could well have fallen from outer space… The sculptured stone was so incredibly hard and heavy that we could not understand how it had been shaped… The island elders agreed that the statue symbolized Hotu Matua’s queen – the one and only queen they still remembered because she appeared in the songs they had preserved about the first landing in Akena bay, when she gave birth.” 10


Heyerdahl and crew made another startling discovery near the southeastern cliffs of Rano Raraku which is supposed to represent the oldest part of the quarries. As they dug down, a huge statue head with a round face, bulging eyes and a goatee appeared. As they continued to excavate, the head became a complete body with arms and legs and in what seemed like a praying posture. This statue is called Tukuturi. A statue with legs had never ben seen or heard of on Easter Island. The image did not seem to belong among the moai of Easter Island. Kneeling stone giants with similar features were typical of the pre-Inca site at Tiahuanaco. This implies that there is a connection between these two examples of ancient stone sculptures in the Andes and on Easter Island. According to Heyerdahl, these statues made of the hard dark basalt were created during the earliest period of the island. 11


English archaeologist and anthropologist Katherine Routledge visited the island in 1914 to complete a thorough survey of the island and later wrote the book “The Mystery of Easter Island.” She found that Easter Island proved to be a land of underground caves, and she personally visited a large number of them during her stay. She discovered that the islanders were so secretive about their hiding places that, often, when a man died his hoard was lost forever. 12 The Franco-Belgian expedition also spent a great deal of time searching for such caves, but all they found were remains of skeletons and sculptures firmly attached to the walls that resemble the petroglyph Make-Make masks. 13 The American expedition led by J. Thomson in 1886 visited the prehistoric caves and found that some had also been used as depositories for the dead. Thomson wrote “One had recesses and angles walled up and filled with human bones and careful investigation proved that all of the caves visited had been used as dwelling places by the early inhabitants.” 14


Regarding the caves, Heyerdahl mentions this in his book ‘Easter Island The Mystery Solved’

“There were caves everywhere. Some were right under our feet in the midst of a stoney field… I forced my way through the narrow passages. And then to sit up inside a vaulted room surrounded by barbaric, bizarre and grotesque sculptures of demons, beasts, skulls, monsters carved in lava. Some pieces showed signs of great age and crumbled to powder at a touch. They were all lying on the floor or placed on stone shelves. In some caves lay skulls and entire skeletons.” 15



Alexander Dalrymple (1736 – 1808) was a Scottish geographer and the first Hydrographer of the British Admiralty. He produced thousands of nautical charts, mapping a remarkable number of seas and oceans for the first time, and contributing significantly to the safety of shipping. Whilst translating some Spanish documents captured in the Philippines in 1762, Dalrymple had found Luis Váez de Torres’ testimony proving a passage south of New Guinea now known as Torres Strait. This discovery led Dalrymple to publish the Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean in 1770 16

In this book, Dalrymple documents the ship logs of Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen’s 1722 voyage to Easter Island. As I read through it I was shocked to find several mentions of very large living giants that were seen ashore on Easter Island and the surrounding islands by Roggeveen and his crew. The account below was the most striking…

Nicholas Hoult

“Thus far my narratives will gain credit, because it contains nothing uncommon, yet I must declare that all these savages are of a more than gigantic size, for the men being twice as tall and thick as the largest of our people; they measured, one with another, the height of twelve feet, so that we could easily – who will not wonder at it without stooping, have passed between the legs of these sons of GOLIATH. According to their height, so is their thickness, and are all, now with another, very well proportioned, so that each could have passed for a HERCULES; but none of their wives came up to the height of the men, being commonly not above ten or eleven feet. The men had their bodies painted with a red or dark brown, and the women with a scarlet color. I doubt not but most people who read this voyage will give no credit to what I now relate, and that this account of the height of these giants will probably pass with them for a mere fable or fiction; but this I declare, that I have put down nothing but the real truth, and that this people, upon the nicest inspection, were in fact of such a surpassing height as I have here described. In the countries adjacent to, and in the SOUTH SEA, giants have been found of a height far superior to us.” 17

Were these living 12 foot tall giants a remnant of descendants from the early period Long-ears?

To bring this 3 part investigative series to a conclusion, let me quote Jo Anne Van Tilburg Ph.D. of the Easter Island Statue Project again…

“The megalithic statues known as the Moai are universally regarded on Rapa Nui today as representations of chiefly, deified ancestors. They are the living faces of the past.”

Were these ancient-chiefly-deified ancestors – who possessed such strange genetic features, who built these megalithic marvels and who were commemorated in 30 foot tall statues – the Nephilim demi-gods that the Bible, the book of Enoch, the Sumerian tablets, Josephus and many other ancient manuscripts speak of?
