Tonga's ancient stone-building

I thought i was going on a pretty far-out tangent with all this ancient stone-builder stuff, but people keep re-affirming that there's a lot more out there...

check out this one in Tonga, thanks to Finer FDKNS for the link. He says there's a whole trove of knowledge on the subject in the Pacific Island section of Manukau library.

Oh so whats the accepted story again? PI peoples were dumb savages who colonised the entire Pacific by drifting around randomly in canoes? we know they had a more advanced knowledge of navigation than Europeans in the middle ages. And look at how square that top stone is. I would say wake up to the truth but i don't know what the truth is either, but its certainly not what we're taught in school.
