There seem's to be more of these being found!!
If this has been posted befoe"I am sorry Mod's" I looked and couldn't find anything on it in the archives.



June 28, 2006 — A group of granite blocks along a grassy Amazon hilltop may be the vestiges of a centuries-old astronomical observatory — a find archaeologists say shows early rainforest inhabitants were more sophisticated than previously believed.
The 127 blocks, some as high as 9 feet tall, are spaced at regular intervals around the hill, like a crown 100 feet in diameter.
On the shortest day of the year — Dec. 21 — the shadow of one of the blocks, which is set at an angle, disappears.

Weird. It also has the major focus stones lined up with the winter solstice, just like England's henges.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not the summer solstice that these megaliths were built for, but for setting the date of the winter solstice, which was more vital to survival.
