Perú - Empire of hidden treasures

New archaeological discovery


Chan Chan: find 20 wooden idols and murals about 800 years old




















Finding was carried out in the walled complex Utzh An, formerly Gran Chimú, in the Chan Chan Archaeological Complex (La Libertad). Sculptures would have fulfilled the function of guardians


Twenty wooden carved idols - one of them in very bad condition - and five murals with the same iconographic discourse were found in the walled complex Utzh An, formerly Gran Chimú, in the Chan Chan Archaeological Complex, capital of the Chimú culture, in Trujillo , region La Libertad.

The sculptures, each 70 centimeters high, approximately, and some 800 years old, would have fulfilled the function of guardians and were found in 20 elongated niches located in the entrance of the aforementioned walled group, north of Chan Chan.

The archaeologist said that each sculpture presents a mask possibly made of clay and bones or crushed beige shells, they stand and carry a scepter in one hand and a circular object that could be a shield. "They could belong to the middle stage of Chan Chan, between 1100 and 1300 AD, and we would be talking about the oldest sculptures known on this site," he added.

These figures are older than those of the Nasca culture. Chronologically they should be 5000 years BC. until the beginning of our era.


Finding Peruvian archaeologists: discover new geoglyphs and lines in Nasca






















Archaeologists indicated that the newly discovered lines have not yet been registered with the Ministry of Culture of Peru. These images were located thanks to drones



Through the use of drones, Peruvian archaeologists have discovered more than 50 new geoglyphs in the adjacent province of Palpa (Ica). These are tracings on the surface of the earth in "almost too thin lines to be seen with the human eye", says the article
published by the National Geographic magazine.

According to this research, some of the newly discovered lines belong to the Nasca culture, which dominated the area from 200 to 700 AD. However, archaeologists suspect that the previous cultures of Paracas and Topará carved many of the newly discovered images between 500 a. C. and 200 d.C.

Unlike the iconic Nasca lines, the ancient glyphs of Paracas were traced on the slopes. In addition, while the Nasca lines often consist of lines or polygons, many of the new Paracas figures represent humans.

Shocking image of a frieze of the Archeological Complex of the Warlock in Trujillo. Representation of an arachnid mythological character from the moche imaginary, wearing a decapitated head. The world-renowned Mochica artistic skill brings to light the sacrificial tradition materialized in a fabulous mural that we can all see and remain petrified of the dramatic horror.

Machu Picchu

According to documents from the mid-sixteenth century, 1 Machu Picchu would have been one of the rest homes of Pachacutec, the ninth Inca of Tahuantinsuyo between 1438 and 1470. However, some of its best buildings and the obvious ceremonial nature of the main thoroughfare of access to llaqta account for its origin prior to Pachacutec and its presumed use as a religious sanctuary

Machu Picchu is considered, at the same time, a masterpiece of architecture and engineering.4 Its peculiar architectural and landscape features, and the veil of mystery that has woven around it much of the literature published on the site, have become one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet.

Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and is on the Unesco World Heritage List since 1983, as part of a cultural and ecological complex known as the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. On July 7, 2007 Machu Picchu was declared as one of the new seven wonders of the modern world in a ceremony held in Lisbon (Portugal)

Figures dressed in elaborate clothes and headgear process from right to left across the face of one of the pillars of the Temple of Pillados Pintados in the Pañamarca site in northwestern Peru. The figures contain typical Moche objects, including a plate with three purple cups, a multicolored stirrup bottle and a fan of feathers.

The Purunmachos, better known as the sarcophagi of # Karajía, are more than 1000 years old and were a set of coffins corresponding to the funerary tradition of the #Chachapoyas. They are unique for their colossal size and careful preparation.

Nasca lines and geoglyphs





They are ancient geoglyphs located within the Nasca desert and they stand out for being composed of figures that have different designs within the earth's surface. These shapes can be geometric, zoomorphic and fitomorphic and extend over an area of ​​450 km². The lengths of these impressive figures range between 50 and 300 meters. The mystery of these geoglyphs lies in the complexity that could be made from the ground, because they are stylized figures and made in a single stroke. UNESCO, in 1994, named them as Cultural Patrimony of Humanity.

Chancay culture


On the central coast, north of Lima, the valleys of Huaral and Huaura were the scene of the emergence of one of the most representative and, at the same time, least studied civilizations of Andean history.

The Señorío Chancay was developed between the years 900 to 1400 AD and constitutes a splendid cultural manifestation of the coastal societies of that time.

In this territory located between the sea and the desert, there is no lack of fresh water or good lands. Life bears fruitfully thanks to a temperate climate, where agriculture was only possible through the construction of canals. These large hydraulic infrastructure works modified the landscape and transformed it into a cultural environment suitable for full life.

The valley irrigates crops and fruit trees with water, while the sea provides an important part of the proteins. The hills, wetlands and the desert provide in abundance the rest of raw materials for making crafts.

The town based its existence on fishing and agriculture, but together with it, it specialized masterfully in the production of ceramics and manufactures.
The textile production stood out above the others; her gauze, tapestries and brocades of multiple colors shone. In the same way, work on hardwoods such as algarrobo and huarango produced works of exquisite quality. The burilado and pyrography of mates with great detail and artistic sense portrayed their important gentlemen, emblems and elements of nature. However, it is in ceramics that a simple but elegant art is portrayed, which portrays everyday life in a conservative and classic way and reveals a village society of docile and peaceful life.

The society is organized in a complex way under a hierarchy of rich rulers who manage large territories, forming a palatial nobility that liked the pageantry and life given. This created a mosaic of peoples with political autonomy, who competed and competed creating one of the most exquisite cultures of ancient Peru.

Wiñay Wayna


It is an Inca ruin along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. It is built on a steep hillside overlooking the Urubamba River. The site consists of upper and lower housing complexes connected by a staircase and fountain structures. Above and below the houses, people built areas of agricultural terraces or platforms, which are still visible.

A camping site for hikers with the same name is located nearby and is generally used as the last campsite during the night for hikers who perform the classic Inca Trail.

Moray

This site is located near Cuzco, in Peru. At first glance it looks like a kind of amphitheater, made up of several circular platforms

It was recognized in 1932 by the expedition of Shirppe Johnson, platforms in the manner of concentric rings. Each circle comprises a terrace that overlaps another, forming circles that expand. You can access from one to another by climbing outgoing stones, stuck in the wall.

Moray was possibly an Inca agricultural research center where crop experiments were carried out at different heights, the layout of its platforms produces a gradient of microclimates with the center of concentric circular platforms having a higher temperature and gradually decreasing towards the outside lower temperatures, thus being able to simulate up to 20 different types of microclimates. It is believed that Moray could have served as a model for the calculation of agricultural production not only from the Urubamba Valley but also from different parts of Tahuantinsuyo.
