Chavín de Huántar is an archaeological site in Peru constructed by 1200 BC. CHAVIN is a major pre-Inca culture.

The temple is a massive flat-topped pyramid with lower platforms around.

The archaeological complex of Chavín de Huántar, in the province of Huari (Ancash), continues to unveil treasures. Since June, a team of archaeologists has unearthed three new galleries in an area surrounding the circular plaza of Chavín. The place has found remarkable ceramic pieces, utensils and an intact human burial.

The sent robots to search in the cavities of the complex.

According to the American anthropologist and archaeologist John Rick, in charge of the program of archaeological research and conservation of Chavín, the three galleries discovered come from the late period of this civilization that developed between 1,300 and 550 before Christ. "What these galleries show is that Chavín has a much broader subterranean world than we think," Rick said.

They say there are currently about 35 galleries built in different periods and still dozens to be dug out. The Government estimates that only 15% of the division manager has been explored !

It feels like we are in a race to uncover all these hidden wonders from our "ancient past" before humanity destroys itself with "futuristic technology."
