Moaisstatue auf Pitcairn gefunden

Landslide Unearths Moai Statue In Pitcairn Islands

A recent landslide on Henderson Island has unearthed the first ever Moai statue to be found outside of Easter Island, a discovery that could shatter previous beliefs about the builders of these mysterious megaliths.
The chance discovery that was made by biologists from University of Chile completely took the team of researchers by surprise who were on the island to study the unique fauna and flora of the inhabited coral atoll.
The news of the discovery astounded their research fellows from the Department of Archeology at University of Chile who quickly flew out to the site of the historical find.

"Perhaps there is more of these Moai statues on other islands, and possibly underwater. Has a great catastrophe submerged these islands at one time in history and covered them with heaps of mud and stones?” asks professor Juan DeSilva. “These questions can only be answered by further research” he admits, visibly enthused by the discovery.
“It was previously thought that the islanders themselves tore down and buried the standing Moais after their civilization had broken down. Some theorists believe this civilization destroyed itself by overburdening the natural resources of Easter Island, such as chopping down the native forests for use of fire and/or even to build the Moai statues” explains Vincento Morales, PhD student and fellow research participant.
“Would not the explanation of a massive tidal wave or great hurricane better explain the hundreds of buried statues on the island and the lack of forests in the area?” he ponders.

“Have great catastrophes in ancient times destroyed, in an instant, all traces of what was once a great civilization that spread across the Pacific Ocean?” asks professor Juan DeSilva from University of Chile.
“If cyclones and hurricanes do not presently occur around Easter Island, some recent theories hold that the climate might have been much different in ancient times”, claims the expert. “The impact of a great meteorite or the close path of a comet, such as recorded in oral traditions of the Polynesian peoples of the Pacific region, could explain such dramatic changes in climate”. 

Henderson Island is part of the Pitcairn Islands, a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. Only Pitcairn, the second largest island measuring about 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) from east to west, is inhabited. -
