A site almost as enigmatic as the Nazca lines exists in the remote areas of Peru. The site spans a radius of approximately 20 miles with strange circular features that look like depressions in the earth that are connected by paths/lines that meander all over the desert region. The site from satellite does have a striking resemblance to Incan type architecture.
Site anomaly characteristics:
- Remote location- In the middle of nowhere with no modern access roads.
- Artificial appearance due to linear features that may be some type of man made roads.
- Appears to be ancient- Linear features are cut by ancient water flow. The lines are broken when they cross small stream or river areas. This suggests the lines were there before the water washed traces of them away indicating an ancient origin.
- Undocumented from an archaeological perspective- no archaeological records have been found yet for this site.
What was the purpose of this site?
- Could be an ancient mining location as the depressions could be where mining occured.
- Some type of agricultural/irrigation technique.
- Dwellings of a city that has remained undiscovered.
So many possibilities yet that’s what makes this search so fun!
