    There exists some debate, some assert Easter Island was first settled around 400 AD, while others place the date hundreds of years later. These discrepancies come from archeological discoveries that suggest that the people of Easter Island were driven by a desire to build the massive neolithic structures that grace the island. Experts debate over how long it would have taken to exploit all the islands resources as they did as well as what happened to the people once they did so.
