      Scientists reveal the secrets of Easter Island's fallen idols
      The Independent [UK], 24 May 2010

      According to Polynesian legend, the stone monoliths of Easter Island
      were put into place by a king who invoked divine power to command the
      statues to walk. Archaeologists have long preferred the more prosaic
      theory that they were heaved into position along a network of
      purpose-built tracks. But the first British archaeological expedition in
      nearly a century to the archipelago, whose giant artifacts have long
      baffled academics and explorers, has arrived at a conclusion which
      threatens to overturn a 50-year-old consensus about the role played by
      the island's ancient road system.
