Easter Island is one of the world’s most remote inhabited islands, located in the Pacific, over 2000 miles west of Chile in South America. Ever since the island was discovered by the outside world on Easter Sunday in 1772, it has generated countless myths and theories about its people and the mysterious Moai, the ‘tall, monstrous statues’ – echoes of a tough and turbulent past.
Illustrated with stunning images from his trip to Easter Island, Brian describes the early Polynesian settlers and the purpose of their enigmatic statues, plus the island’s wildlife and landscapes. This talk is not to be missed by armchair travellers, those interested in history and geography, and all lovers of nature and wilderness.

Includes a three course lunch

I had a wonderful afternoon at Dillington House - exactly the sort of audience that authors hope for when speaking about their books. The questions were not only well informed but enabled me to fill in the gaps left by my original talk. I look forward to going back. Lord Hattersley
