Analyzing the so-called Pucao - giant rock huts of monuments (moai) on Easter Island - provides proof against the widespread believe that old civilisation had a belligerent tradition. The Easter Island, named Rapa Nui by its first residents, is one of the most secluded populated isles in the run.
With a weight of several tonnes, they were placed on the minds of the mai during the pre-historic period, in accordance with the Polish tradition of honouring their forefathers. Prof. Carl Lipo from the State University of New York, Binghamton, and his counterparts from Pennsylvania State University, California State University, and the University of Oregon have conducted the first trial to analyze the importance of coucao.
Scientists took 3-D pictures of 50 Pukaos that once decorated the island of Moais, and likened them to 13 other rock huts in Puna Pau, the island's scarlet Puna Pau pit. You found that there are far more carvings in Pukkao than previously thought. Pucao are large, round rocks of'red slag'.

Results of the research will be disseminated in the magazine Advanced in Archeological Practice. "While Easter Island is well known, the island's archeological documentation is not well documented," said Professor Lipo.
