So, you believe everything mainstream archaeology says?
Pumapunku is a site that forms part of the better known Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco) complex in Bolivia. Although the ancient astronauts proponents try to ascribe a vast age to the complex (over 14,000 years is not uncommon), there is a radiocarbon date from a primary deposit of 1510 ± 25 bp, which calibrates to 517-605 CE at 96% confidence. This quite clearly puts the origin of the site in the sixth century CE; those who want an earlier origin have to explain why no earlier cultural material has been found at the site. The sites are known for their stone architecture, which displays features that are quite unlike Old World building techniques. The complex joints between the stones are sophisticated and designed to provide strong wall without mortar and maximum stability in an earthquake zone; they are not evidence that aliens guided the human builders, as the programme seems to have claimed, and exhibit increasing sophistication with time.
It's hilarious to me that people really, genuinely believe this crap
It may be in the Andes, but it's in Bolivia, not Peru.

One of the best episodes of all seasons, so far. The crew dedicated the entire episode to scrutinize the megalithic buildings of Puma Punku, in the highest area of Peruvian Andes.
No, they do not have clear signs of hi-tech machinery, they look like rock cut with hi-tech machinery but do not show any clear signs of any tools that may have been used.
The most astonishing structures every registered in ancient civilizations, because is the only one that present visible and clear signs of hi-tech machinery crafting in giant blocks with hundreds of tons, assembled as legos.
Those models, as usual, do not look exactly like the small gold objects that they are supposed to mimic, and to me they look like flying fishes, not birds.
They also made new tests with actual RC replicas of the notorious aerial vehicles reproduced in gold models by the ancient Incas, that archeologists claim they are "stylized birds", and proved AGAIN they are fully functional AIRCRAFTS.
What does it say?
And they managed to make the connection of Puma Punku with the Sumerians and the Anunnaki, by using an artifact exposed in a Peruvian museum, which is a ceramic bowl with several Sumerian cuneiform glyphs carved all over its surface.

Let's have some of our "mainstream archaeology" apologists explain the "Fuente Magna Bowl'.
Also, what methods do you think the builders used to measure, cut and move the stones.
I know enough about human abilities to know, for a fact, that nothing made or manufactured in history couldn't have been made by man.

I do however have serious doubts about the scientific value of the show and the validity of some of the conclusions and inferences they draw - they seem extremely questionable, and many of the 'featured' speakers and researchers seem to simply be looking for evidence to back up their conclusions rather than looking first to the evidence and then drawing conclusions.

AA is really a fantastic series; one of which can actually be taken seriously in my opinion.
Fun to watch, but of questionable scientific merit.
I like the plant story for some things. But you have to admit unable to deny, Puma Punku is evidence of cutting diorite at the very least 12,000 yrs ago.
There are no pros on that show. There are popular writers, not archeologists..
