The Mystery Of Peru’s Nazca Lines
Amystery lies in the coastal plains of southern Peru that has had both archaeologists and scientists confused for nearly a century. The Nazca lines have been drawn in sand by the ancient indigenous people, however the reason behind this is entirely unknown. Countless theories have come about since they were found approximately eighty years ago.
The Nazca Lines were only discovered until modern aviation came about. A pilot noticed the stunning lines in 1939, and with time, many more geoglyphs were found, some formed as animals and others as geometric shapes.
Due to the dry and hot climate in the region, the lines are well preserved. A sub-layer filled with lime has also hardened throughout the years, which protects it even further from being eroded. Regardless, many people believe that once upon a time there were even more shapes than what it seen today.
A 2014 sandstorm revealed two new patterns of a llama and a snake, which has led speculation that as many as 700 geoglyphs could have once existed. Scientists have found that the lines were drawn by digging somewhere between four-six inches in the dark upper strata and took place over 500 years. The real mystery here though is why?
Perhaps it was navigation, or irrigation or maybe even a form of a celestial calendar. Other theories believe that they were created for aliens who once visited the region.
Another theory is that the lines were drawn to please the gods and get rain in return, since they had very little rain and needed the water to survive. It is believed that the canals were built in divine shapes to thank the Gods for bringing water.
