Welcome to Mysterious Places: Easter Island Self-Paced Class!

**$4.00 for a 4-month subscription to the class page**

Looking into your neighbor’s yard you see a giant head statue looking back. Scratching your head you remember vaguely about hearing of giant head statues on a holiday island…what was it? Eureka! Easter Island! Suddenly interested in finding out more you sign up for this self-paced class. This class uncovers the discovery, founding, and naming of Easter Island (Seems like a strange name for an island right?). Those “big head” statues that are associated with the island are called Moai and those are discussed in detail, materials in creating them, possible meanings, details about them that are not as well known, how they were moved, how many are there, and more. This class isn’t all about the statues, the history of the people that live there, the Orongo site and Birdman are also covered in this class. Take this class and you can tell that neighbor or anyone else who wants to know, all about Easter Island!

It should be noted that when discussing dates in history both known forms of historical “dating” are used, due to the prevalence of both forms in books and on the internet. Curious as to how I use both dating systems interchangeably? Here is an example that you may find: The Song Dynasty began in 960 AD/CE. To prevent bias, I switch the order around, so you may also see: a date reference like this: 375 BCE/BC.

Due to the length and nature of this class, it is not subject to our Withdrawal and Refund Policy for self-paced classes.

In addition to teaching I spent several years working as a Veterinary Technician. My biggest interests (other than the family) are history, different people around the world and animals. I enjoy discovering unique information and stories and sharing that with others. There are so many cool things to discover in the world, I enjoy learning new things every day and sharing knowledge with others.
