Scientists discover ruins in Peru dating 5,500 years





View of the circular square built about 5,500 years ago at the archeological complex of Sechin Bajo, at the mountain range of the Casma region, in Ancash area, Peru, 24 February 2008. The complex, considered to be the most ancient in Peru, was discovered by a team of Peruvian and German archeologists a few weeks ago.

It was just me the picture is working fine now, small shot though.

I notice the OP is off line, does anyone else have a link to more information as I find the picture quite amazing, if the thread title is to be believed.

They think there exists evidence of even older structures beneath.


Earlier finds near Sechin Bajo had been dated at 3,600 years, and there may be other pieces of the citadel older than the plaza.

"We've found other pieces of architecture underneath the plaza that could be even older," German Yenque, an archeologist at the dig site, told Reuters. "There are four or five plazas deeper down, which means the structure was rebuilt several times, perhaps every 100 to 300 years."

This is fascinating, I love hearing about new finds in the archaeological field, however I would like to know why this is in the myths and legends forums, since this city is a fact, unless I missed out on some sort of tie in?

Just to note it's actually in the Ancient civilizations, myths and legends.


But I agree it's very fascinating to hear about newly discovered ancient artifacts. Peru was definitely an ancient metropolis of sorts dating back to 3000bc or earlier...

The press reports on the neolithic finds have been (by the media) mixed with the Graeco-Roman finds at/near the same location. Reference to limestone and granite seems to apply to the later Roman period and not the neolithic.

I haven't read the paper yet
