History

Was writing on Rapa Nui invented before the arrival of the Europeans?

This is suggested by radiocarbon dating of a wooden tablet analysed by BRAVHO, the Bologna radiocarbon laboratory devoted to human evolution, as part of the INSCRIBE and RESOLUTION projects. The results enrich the historical understanding of Rapa Nui and have an impact on the global study of the invention of writing.
