Caral is the most ancient city of the Americas, and is a well-studied site of the Caral civilization or Norte Chico civilization.
Tumshukaiko is rectangular and measures are approximate 250 meters wide and 300 long and 25 meters high. Its structure is made of stone and used inside and outside stairs and galleries that cover the inside. Also found pottery and lithic events.
For the architectural features is described as having a political, religious and administrative, is constructed of carved stones joined with mud mortar, its architecture has walls surround with curved corners in stages, indoor enclosures forming superimposed platforms, we also found a wide staircase leading to upper level, where they performed the ceremonies of a political, religious and administrative.
This unique monument in the Callejon de Huaylas, holds many unknowns and mysteries under a layer aluviónica that protects hundreds of years. In 1873, Antonio Raimondi makes a first description Tumshukaiko registering as a muzzle, even destroyed, formed by large stone walls located horizontally, forming internal corridors and stairways.
Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over an approximately 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC.
The area around Tiwanaku may have been inhabited as early as 1500 BC as a small agriculturally based village.[

truly amazing, and a real call out that something has to be fixed with our conception of history

It's generally been accepted that agriculture near Caral began around 8,000 BCE, not much longer after it had in Mesopotamia.
This lower layer, not yet finished digging, but thicker Tumshukaiko III corresponds to pre-Chavín.And whose relative chronology, by crossing evidence, would be contextualized to the late preceramic (2.200 BC).
Tumshukaiko is a site with early formative contextual architecture between the Galgada and Chavin Tumshukaiko only in the buildings are huge, but the architectural similarity reproduced with triangular carved stones to form the curved corners and monumental withdrawal tabs are chronological and continuity test preceramic cultural architecture

No problem. The archeologist mentioned said this site is older than Caral (another site). He estimated Tumshukaiko was stablished about 5 or 7 thousands BC. We are trying to comfirm or debunk it. If true, this place would be older than Giza pyramid, that is mind blowing.
