Archaeologists of Peru have discovered 50 enigmatic Nazca Lines, which are more than 1000 years old. These are very large drawings – seen only through aircraft or high mountains - made on sandy plateaus of the Nazca region. This discovery was made during a drone survey of the Nazca province.
The Nazca lines are a series of large ancient geoglyphs of the Nazca Desert. Geoglyphs are the large drawings made on the durable ground surface like rocks. Most of the geoglyphs mostly are icons and Nazca geoglyphs are generally animals and birds. The largest Nazca Line is up to 370 metres (1,200 ft.) long. Nazca Lines have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994. This newest discovery includes about 50 new Nazca drawings in the desert. The archaeologists also suspect that some of the newly found lines or drawing have not been drawn by the Nazca culture. And, by the Paracas and Topara cultures between 500 B.C. and 200 A.D. Luis Jaime, a Peruvian archaeologist said that most of the drawings discovered are that of warriors. The existence of such lines is still not understood. Some think it was a way that how Nazca’s worshipped God. Some see it as an astronomical observatory site and some see it just as a part of Nazca culture.
These newly discovered lines will tell the researchers more about ancient Nazca culture. They will learn more about it and this time, more about the Nazca warriors!
