By Alexander Krivenyshev, World Time Zone. If one follows recent radiocarbon analysis and theory that human habitation of Easter Island actually began around 700-1100 years ago and the giant Moai idols were carved from rock between the years 1100 and 1500. If one considers these facts and overlays the calculated, historical data of total solar eclipses occurring many centuries ago (Xavier M. Jubier, Espenak and Anderson, NASA), it turns out that the July 11, 2010 eclipse may be the first total solar eclipse that the giant Moai statues and inhabitants of the island have ever seen.
