Who knows indeed. I have a book here, looking very
respectable: "State and Perspectives of Scientific
Research in Easter Island Culture", Heide-Margaret
Esen-Baur, ed., Courier Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg,
1990,  ISBN etc. In it, pp.123-137 is an article, with photos showing
skeletal remains stored in the topknots ("pukao") of
some statues ("moai"). Yet,  I have not read anywhere
any report of such finds, even in  Michel and Catherine
Orliac's excellent little book on Easter Island. What gives?
Was it a hoax? Was it ignored because it was in Spanish?
