Format: Paperback
This is a well researched book but I was hoping that it would include more information on the famous stone statues. If you want to ounderstand the occupation and development of the island and the social, economic and cultural devlopment then buy this book.

Having visited the island a few years ago I thought I would see if there was anything that I had missed by reading this book,all I can say was that I had and this book filled the gaps!
I couldnt put it down and enjoyed every page, highly recommended to all.
