Human osteological research was a part of the 1987-88 KonTiki Expedition to Easter Island. As a part of this research, cranial casts were produced from six well-preserved skulls (three males, three females) collected by the Norwegian Expedition of 1955-56, by Rapu and Haoa in 1978 and by the 1981 Easter Island Anthropological Expedition (See Appendix 1). The original remains are housed within the collections of the Sebastian Englert Museum on Easter Island and the University of Minnesota (E47, Hekii, G2), and the casts and molds with the Department of Anthropology, University of Wyoming.
