Ancient drawings have been just discovered in Nazca desert in Southern Peru. Watch the video…
Peruvian researches unveiled the mysterious geoglyphs created by the Nazca people, who lived in the area from 200 to 700 CE.
However they now suspect that the earlier Paracas and Topará cultures carved many of the newfound images between 500 B.C. and 200 A.D.
Peruvian archaeologist Luis Jaime Castillo butters, explains:
“These ones could be spotted from a certain distance, so people had seen them, but over time, they were completely erased.
This means that it is a tradition of over a thousand years that precedes the famous geoglyphs of the Nazca culture, which opens the door to new hypotheses about its function and meaning.”
