The area in question is very dry but bizarrely the remnant ruins show what appears to be water erosion. Two things pop into question. 1. When did the last major environment change occur and 2. Just exactly how possibly old is this site? Here are couple of renditions of what the whole site may have looked like at it's height.

I'm pretty sure a lot of these mummies weren't even mummies at all, really. If these are the same people I'm thinking of, some of these people were found mummified after having died in their homes. Talk about an arid climate! That's not to say they didn't practice mummification though, because they did. Just that its a very intriguing site, for many reasons.
Slayer, I'd almost wager the last time this site saw heavy rain and lots of water was 10,500BC. What do ya wanna bet? Haha
And its not only that either. Its nearly ALL of these old monolithic sites that are found in inhospitable areas. From Turkey to the jungles of the Yucatan. From Tue Peruvian desert to the very top of the Andes mountains.
They're all over the world, but we don't find them in, say, the Great Plains of North America.
that's why I have been pulling these large PDFs and reading through them. I am truly fascinated by them. There is a lot there that is missing.

Oh man, I could spend all day talking about my various outside the box theories on the Olmec. That's a culture I'm going to revisit and soon as a topic of a thread.
