Easter Island’s red-hatted statues

Archaeologists have figured out where the red hats that sit on top of many of Easter Island’s stone heads came from.

They pieced together a series of clues to discover how the statues got their red hats. An axe, a road, and an ancient volcano led to their findings.

Dr Richards said: “We know the hats were rolled along the road made from a cement of compressed red scoria dust.”
