Big Find Made in South American Desert

Uncategorized

Archaeologists have discovered 168 ancient carvings in the ground of a desert in Peru.

Scholars of Japan’s Yamagata University and Peruvian archaeologist Jorge Olano identified the previously unknown geoglyphs in the Nazca Province of southern Peru, according to a university news release earlier this month.

The manmade structures in question date from 100 B.C to 300 A.D — well over a thousand years before the New World became known to Western civilization.

The inscriptions, which range in size, depict a diverse range of living beings, including humans, killer whales, felines, snakes, camelids, and birds.

The ancient artwork was discovered through field surveys conducted with the use of drones between 2019 and 2020.

Scholars believe that the earth inscriptions were created through the removal of black stones from the ground, revealing sandy, white terrain below, which contrasted with the earth to make identifiable shapes.

The newly discovered geoglyphs are mostly situated alongside ancient trails.

The geoglyphs are situated in the same desert as the well-known Nazca Lines, much bigger ancient artwork that is visible to the naked eye of aerial travelers.

The bigger Nazca Lines were created in a more labor-intensive process, which involved the removal of topsoil in the making of artwork that has endured for thousands of years.

The greater Nazca Lines are so big that it wasn’t until modern aviation that many of the structures became known to modern man, according to National Geographic.
