Ancient method for rolling the drive flat?
But then if you had a flat drive you could use wheels.
Um...

Yes. Absolutely. They cut down every tree to do it. All their soil eroded. They couldn't grow crops. It devastated the entire island population and ecosystem.

I thought that only the heads were showing above ground but many had large bodies underneath the ground...don't think it could have been accomplished this way for those.

The Easter Island statues are much taller than this. Still it is pretty neat that it could walk blind folded like that.

Todays scientists and engineers hate the thought that our ancestors had more knowledge than they do.

pretty sure they used a type of palm tree and the oil from the tree to roll the statues over the logs...which lead to deforestation of the island and their demise...this was settled about a decade ago.

Most plausible way I've heard of yet. Hell, most kids learn to walk heavy objects pretty young so this makes a lot of sense
