Summary
  • Easter Island: "The mute sentinels of Easter Island are mysteries locked in stone. Nearly 1000 haunting human sculptures are the only remaining citizens of a vanished culture that existed a millennium ago, 1500 miles from the nearest inhabited island. Weighing up to 80 tons each, the moat say nothing; but, with some investigation, they speak volumes. Take a look behind the stone faces and discover how such a remote society achieved monolithic greatness--and then disappeared. Discover how Easter Island's massive documents created peace, harmony--and ecological disaster."--Container
  • China bridge: "The center of a famed twelfth-century Song Dynasty scroll painting features woven wooden beams in the graceful arc of a rainbow--the Rainbow Bridge--an archaeological form as well-known in China as the Eiffel Tower is in the West. Ingeniously designed bridges typify China's inventive past--a society that created paper money, gunpowder and the compass. While not a single Song Dynasty Rainbow Bridge remains, the mystery of their construction endures."--Container
