The Mystery of Easter Island New findings rekindle old debates about when the first people arrived and why their civilization collapsed Outer slope of the Rano Raraku volcano, the quarry of the Moais with many uncompleted statues. Easter Island By Whitney Dangerfield smithsonian. When and why these people left their native land remains a mystery. But what is clear is that they made a small, uninhabited island with rolling hills and a lush carpet of palm trees their new home, eventually naming their 63 square miles of paradise Rapa Nui—now popularly known as Easter Island. On this outpost nearly 2, miles west of South America and 1, miles from the nearest island, the newcomers chiseled away at volcanic stone, carving moai, monolithic statues built to honor their ancestors. They moved the mammoth blocks of stone—on average 13 feet tall and 14 tons—to different ceremonial structures around the island, a feat that required several days and many men. Eventually the giant palms that the Rapanui depended on dwindled. Many trees had been cut down to make room for agriculture; others had been burned for fire and used to transport statues across the island. The treeless terrain eroded nutrient-rich soil, and, with little wood to use for daily activities, the people turned to grass. By the time Dutch explorers—the first Europeans to reach the remote island—arrived on Easter day in , the land was nearly barren.

History[ edit ] Little is known about the beginnings of Tilburg. The name “Tilburg” first appeared in documents dating from AD but after that there was no mention for several centuries. In the later Middle Ages, Tilburg referred to a region rather than a particular town or village; its population was largely in a couple of hamlets, one of which was known as “Eastern Tilburg” Oost-Tilburg , which was later reflected in the name of Oisterwijk “Eastern Quarter”.
This village centred around a small probably wooden castle or Motteburcht on an equally small hill, which became derelict and was torn down after a few centuries at most. Of this first “Tilburg Castle”, nothing remained c. In the 14th century, Tilburg was proclaimed a manor ; together with Goirle , it acquired the title of “The Manor of Tilburg and Goirle”. Successively, the manorial rights fell into the hands of several lords of noble lineage. They derived their income from taxes, fines and interest paid by the villagers.
In , however, the castle was pulled down to make way for a factory, but the name lives on, in the city arms and logo. A replica of the foundations of the castle was restored in ca.
