ResumenAs the authors point out in the last chapter of this massive work, Easter Island or Rapa Nui is one of those places on Earth that has captured our imagination for decades. When the universe was an island is without question a masterpiece, opening insights into the culture and society of this tiny island populated with a vast number of ceremonial platforms (ahu) and impressive statues (moai) devoted to deified ancestors. The Rapanui was (and is) an Eastern Polynesian society with deep roots in the Lapita culture. Sea-faring and star-tracking for navigation have been claimed as important cultural traits for these peoples who once colonized one of the most unhospitable areas on Earth, reaching Rapa Nui around a.d. 900–1000 according to archaeological records.
