Ancient stone quarry on the Yangshan mountain, China.
It's one of the unfinished parts for the stele, ordered by the Yongle Emperor.

I had to look up these names/details.

The carving is at Haya Marca in Peru but I'm not sure if this rock niche has a more specific name

Indeed.


"Puerta de Hayu Marca" or Gate of the Gods/Spirits.
At the shore of Lake Titicaca.

Ah well I was close! I've only seen it in books, usually if I've seen something in person I remember the full name.

Thanks for the information!

I'm stumped Hans,
The building looks familiar, but I can't place it.
And was the body buried in a larger ceramic vessel.

The first one is Menkaure's Sarcophagus that was lost at sea on it's way to London, and only that drawing remains. It was found at the Pyramid of Menkaure on the Giza Plateau.

The second is a Neolithic Burial from Ban Non Wat in Thialand from around 2100 BC. It is a man inside a Mortuary Vessel.


Good post Hanslune.
I didn't know of either of these, and had to do a little research.

Why is this hand axe significant and where was it found?


This is Dr Leakey looking at a find



Here


Where these were found and are quite controversial



So where is this second location and why is it controversial.

It's Solutrean and it was found on the Eastern Coast of the United States. Meaning that Europeans had reach N.America much sooner than previously thought.

ETA: looking at the picture of the area, I'm guessing Chile and the artifacts are pre-clovis.

Unfortunately it remains un-accepted by the consensus - at best it can be considered controversal, neither proven or completely rejected.


Meltzer is among those still skeptical of the Solutrean hypothesis, citing the scant evidence. “If Solutrean boat people washed up on our shores, they suffered cultural amnesia, genetic amnesia, dental amnesia, linguistic amnesia and skeletal amnesia. Basically, all of the signals are pointing to Asia” as the origin of the first Americans.


I believe the image being shown is not the cinmar blade that is something different. I believe it is a hand axe (its isn't a Soultrean blade),from Kathu Pan in the Northern Cape, SA dated back to 750,000 years
