Postcranial and cranial skeletons from Easter Island - Rupert Ivan Murrill
Postcranial and cranial skeletal remnants from Easter Island were first released in 1968. The Minnesota Archive Edition uses state-of-the-art electronic technologies to make long disused works available again, and is unchanged from the University of Minnesota Press's previous work. In 1955-1956, an archeological exploration of Easter Island and the East Pacific was organised and funded by Thor Heyerdahl, the Kon-Tiki Norway ethnologist.
Though Professor Murrill was not a member of the mission, he was asked to examine and analyse the anthropological aspects of the skeleton found by the mission during Easter Island missions. These finds shed a clear light on the origins of the Easter Islanders.
It is unlikely that a Negroid migratory (possibly from Melanesia) has anticipated a Polish to Easter Island and, based on his assessment of the type grouping system, he proposes that the Polish and Native Indians might come from the same genetic stock in East Asia.

Every subsequent stratum unveils an ancient civilisation, another facet of the self, until the archaeological self comes to the evidence of the site's inmate. There, we find the sunlight in the shade, our brilliance and our splendour! For more information, see the song of the stags by Thunder Strikes with Jan Orsi.
