Well, Since I guessed the last one I suppose it's my turn. Unfortunately my brain is fried at the moment so to keep things moving like a well oiled machine I gratefully pass my turn on to whomever wants to take it.

OK.

Here's another one.

This big rock has some strange markings, and a modern building now protects it.

That's the Heavener Runestone in Oklahoma

en.wikipedia.org...



The Heavener Runestone is an inscribed stone located in Heavener, Oklahoma. The land on which it sits is now a state park on Poteau Mountain, just outside the town limits. The origin of the stone's runic carvings is disputed.




My turn?

Looks like thick defensive walls, built one after another, somewhat different ways. Is it somewhere in the middle east? Or perhaps Africa?

Edited for stupidity. Of course those are rune stone markings...

(The markings looks like rune stone symbols.)

It is one of the 19? Pyramids at Caral




Caral was inhabited between roughly 2600 BCE and 2000 BCE, [1] enclosing an area of more than 60 hectares. [2] Caral was described by its excavators as the oldest urban center in the Americas, a claim that was later challenged as other ancient sites were found nearby. Accommodating more than 3,000 inhabitants, it is the best studied and one of the largest Norte Chico sites known.

Bandurria

Lima, Apr. 16 (ANDINA). The archaelogical site of Bandurria dating back 3200 BC (located in the province of Huaura, Lima) is considered the origin of ancient American civilization, said archaeologist Alejandro Chu Barrera, director of the Archaeological Project of Bandurria.

“Several radiocarbon datings done in the United states confirmed that Bandurria dates back from 3200 B.C., while Caral dates from 2900”, said the archaeologist.

The expert mentioned that the main reason for the development of highly organized cultures along the Peruvian coast is explained in the availavility of marine resources which allowed to improve the population’s diet of the place.

Bandurria is located 140 kilometres from Lima and received this peculiar name because of a bird which inhabit this area. It was discovered by late 1973 but first excavations took place in 1977. It wasn't until July 2005 that the site begun to be excavated by a team of archeologists and students from San Marcos National University, led by archeologist Alejandro Chu.

So these recently excavated sites in Peru may be as old as the Egyptian pyramids?

Amazing.

Sites in America date back to 20,000 BC (18,000 years before the pyramids.)

Of course, sites on the other side of the world go back 70,000 years...

Here you go,
This carving of a dog head is 40,000 years old and is made from camel bone.


And was found with these tools.

Where was it found and what nearby site is very controversial.

It was found in the Middle East near Mecca? or somewhere similar and is controversial because of religious reasons.

Here's a link about the Camelids. It's shouldn't be controversial for a bone to be found in that region.

Thank you. The post said "camel bone". I should've thought outside the box on that one and taken llamas and alpacas into consideration.
