Just finished to read this one. I've been in Nazca a few times and must say not too many places like this in the world.



I will check for an english version, meanwhile a translation from a local source (notice the size of the geoplyph) :


Members of the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology at Bristol University in England discovered a new figure in the Lines of Nazca (Ica). It is a circular maze and was found after five years of research.

The new geoglyph is more than 4 km long and would have been created between 1500 and 2000 years.

Also unknown function of this figure, however was allegedly made ​​on grounds of religious or mystical.

In addition, the irregular shape that has suggested that it was not intended for that could be seen from the air.

Got it :




A large labyrinth lies in the midst of Peru's Nazca Lines, according to the most detailed study on the enigmatic desert etchings created between 2,100 and 1,300 years ago.

Completely hidden in the flat and featureless landscape, the labyrinth was identified after a five-year investigation into the arid Peruvian coastal plain land, about 250 miles south of Lima, where the mysterious geoglyphs are located.

"As you walk it, only the path stretching ahead of you is visible at any given point," Clive Ruggles of the University of Leicester's School of Archaeology and Ancient History, said.

Ruggles and colleague Nicholas Saunders of the University of Bristol's Department of Archaeology and Anthropology walked more than 900 miles of desert, tracing the lines and geometric figures carved between 100 B.C. and 700 A.D. by the Nasca people. They reported their findings in the December issue of the journal Antiquity.

when you went there, did you get to fly over them? otherwise what's the point? can only see them from the sky right... or from a vantage mountain peak overlooking one...

cool to see a newly found one... how is it that it went undiscovered for so long??

I'm sorry I couldn't answer you earlier, working too many hours lately.

Is not entirely right to say the Nazca Lines can't be observed unless you fly over, but certainly is the best way. The Panamerican Highway crosses the area right in the middle. I was in peru when I was young (long, long time ago), and used to travel around that amazing country a lot, mostly hitchhiking with just my backpack. So as you can imagine, a plane wasn't affordable.

There is a big tower in Nazca I used to climb, from there you can see some of the lines very well. I don't remember paying for that. Also, there is a hill in the area that people used to climb to have a good view, I don't know if that is allowed today, but in those years it was easy to get as close as you wanted to the lines.

Here is a link about the tower I just told you.

Also, try this 360 view right from the top of the tower, there you'll see the hills I mentioned.

So it's still to be confirmed by locals. Hmmm, I wish I have coordinates to put in google earth.

Clearly the Nazca lines are advertising. "Hummingbirds next exit, Spiral inter-dimensional gateway just ahead, etc."
All the pyramids are road markers.

Great thread, The Nazka lines are fantastic. They run for miles, you just have to mind the gaps.

I invite you to spend 30 minutes looking at those lines on Google Earth. Then see if you believe they are simple.
