Secrets of the Lost Empire ~ Easter Island

Today on Far Future Horizons we premiering a new documentary series titled “Secrets of Lost Empires”. In the first episode we return to the enchanting and mysterious island of Rapa Nui, better known today by its modern name of Easter Island.

In this first instalment of this acclaimed PBS series we travel to Easter Island to discover the secrets of this vanished civilization through the "moai," the massive headstones that these ancient islanders created to achieve peace and harmony, yet resulted in geological disaster.

Secrets of Lost Empires is a two part television series produced by PBS Nova, Boston (WGBH). Both series explore experimentally how ancient civilizations achieved notable constructions without modern machinery and construction methods. Each episode has guest experts who are challenged to develop and implement methods that may have been used. The original series was produced with the BBC and fully compiled in 1997 (although some episodes had been produced much earlier) and the second series was produced with Channel Four of the UK and fully compiled in 2000.

Secrets of the Lost Empire Easter Island is available  from Amazon Books.
