Mystery Type: Artefact
Mystery Name: Rongorongo – writings on wooden tablets
Place Name: Easter Island
There still remains the riddle of the writing. At one time, some of the statues wore small wooden tablets around their neck. Two of them are exhibited in the anthropological museum of Santiago de Chile. The engravings show a certain affinity with the writing of Mohenjo-daro, an ancient Indus Valley civilization (modern-day Pakistan). Only the dating does not fit. The settlement of Easter Island is thought to have occurred about 350 AD; the Mohenjo-daro civilization existed more than 2,000 years earlier. Nothing adds up.
The latest theory about Easter Island comes from the German archeologist Kurt Horedt. He discovered a remarkable similarity between Germanic runes and the illegible characters of Easter Island. Two lines of inscription with nine runes were discovered near Gallehus in Northern Schleswig (Germany) in the 16th and 17th century. Seven of them reappear in almost identical form on the wooden tablets of Easter Island. How is that possible’
Did northern Germanic peoples end up on Easter Island 1,500 years ago?
Who built it?, How is such a connection possible?
Proven Facts: Similarity to Germanic runes and writings of the Mohenjo-Daro Culture (Indus Valley, Pakistan)
Type: Inscriptions – Writings
