Fascinating by its stone statues of cyclopean dimensions Easter Island is presented today as the archetype of an ecological disaster of great magnitude. For the past 10 years a multidisciplinary scientific team has been studying and excavating the island, dating samples and re-examining historical documents to better understand its past. Not such investigation had ever been conducted before. The history of Easter Island would not be that of a collapse but rather an adaptation of this population facing a climate crisis and its gradual shift towards a new social and religious order where the ancestors were replaced by the gods.
