My friend also believes the Chinese Empire is.
About 2008/2009 Dr. Lorenzo Samaniego Román, peruvian archeologist, explained that this structure is much more older than Caraz, about 5 to 7,000 years BC. Also, he said the agriculture developed in that area wasn't the reason of this settlement, actually devoled as a concequence of the population needs.

The oldest one? of course that is determined by your definition of "civilisation" in my opinion.
I strongly believe in at least 1 pretty high developed pre-flood civilisation. Call it Atlantis, Lemuria or whatever.
Again, one has to define "developed" here! Spritually, technologically, writing, cruise missiles ?

During an Anthropology course I read a bit about the Joman people, who actually seem to date quite sometime ago.
Lindow man's people seem to be pretty old as well
Seeing that I was raised in Florida, I found the excavation of Windover people to be quite amazing and old as well.
hope this helps.
