Where is this located in Peru?
Here's another image of flattened hilltops...
Looking at that long range photo, is it just me or are those two/three flattened areas joined by the ridge?
Also is there not a short pathway entering the bottom of the nearest flattened area?
Not knowing the scale, the whole assembly looks rather large, but, what about a birthing area at the bottom, people line the edges of the first
flattened area, torches, sounds etc etc..and the newly born is carried to the ridge and then along it, this could represent life (?) and the further
flattened area could be death, with two courses available, (Heaven/Hell).
Maybe by the time the procession carrying the new born to where the two flattened areas divide, a decision has been made as to the possibility that
the newborn is to be the new leader.
How any of this is connected to the other lines on the plains or even how the flattened areas were created I have no idea.
Modern landscape engineering uses a cut and fill method to minimise the need to remove spoil. Could this have been the process used, but where did the
people live whilst all the work was going on?
In Wiltshire, associated with Stonehenge, there is the "Cursus", which it has been suggested was used as some sort of procession-way. From the air,
I suppose it could look a bit like the flattened areas in the OP's photo. So maybe there is some precedence.
I have to agree that the area is filled with mystery.
