Rongorongo

Rongorongo

Considered the other “Easter Island mystery,” Rongorongo is the hieroglyphic script used by early inhabitants of the island. While no none of the neighboring peoples had a written language (of course Easter Island was a long long way away from anything else), Rongorongo appeared from no where in the 1700s. Early colonists banned the language, its meaning lost forever. Just looking at the tablet below you will see what appears to be body parts and people. This strengthens our hypothesis that this was a menu of some sort.
