New Peruvian Geoglyphs Found
Circular geoglyphs have been found near the site of Quilcapampa in Peru dated
to 1050-1400 AD. They may be related to trade routes. The geoglyphs are both
lines and rings within rings. Rock piles and cairns accompany the glyphs.
Perhaps they pointed at trade routes or they mark the end of a journey. At
the time of Quilcapampa, trade between the coast and the highland was very
active. The research will be published in the Journal of Archaeological
Science, and work will continue there.
Ancient Origins has the report here with their usual array of good photos;
