Google Turf is the perfect tool to explore and discover the physical remains of ancient civilizations or unexplained anomalies found throughout this wonderful world. Maintain it or not, some amazing discoveries have already been found interesting this program. And now a mysterious site spanning the Pisco Valley, Peru, has been highlighted by Google Ground.
On the same plateau where the famous Nazca Lines are found, thousands of slits have been carved into rock, creating a band that stretches further than a mile.
It is unexplored who carved these holes, or why they were created, but it is clear that this massive creation must have been a painstaking job, requiring many hours of manpower.
This strange-looking construction in the Pisco Valley on the Nazca Highland in Peru was first documented by aerial photography in 1933.
From the air, the mile-long shed ones clothes of land with the strange marks looks very much get off on the tire tracks left by a monster dirt bike made a dream of time ago.
Located on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, Machu Picchu is considered one of the sundry mystical sites on our planet.
Machu Picchu is a pre-Columbian Inca situate built around 1400 AD.
The area only thrived for 100 years and the town was abandoned following the Spanish conquest of the Inca empire in Peru.
Theories of its plan range from it being the birthplace of the Incan “Virgins of the Suns”, an development of the Incan emperor Pachacuti, a prison for the select few who commit extremely heinous misdemeanours or as a settlement to control the economy of the conquered lands.
Archaeology magazine send a lettered that Charles Stanish, an expert on Andean cultures at the University of California, and his team-mate Henry Tantaleán had their interest in the Band of Holes sparked when a man from Pittsburgh doubted Stanish about possible alien involvement in the creation of the holes.
Mr Stanish was not au courant with the site, but after he and Tantaleán took a look at it via Google Loam, they decided it was an area of interest.
He said: “It seemed to be made up of thousands of ashamed depressions running upslope. I’d never seen anything like it.
“It remarkably seemed unique.”
It was also only 10 miles from Stanish and Tantaleán’s own craters in the nearby Chincha Valley.
The Band of Holes is composed of some 7000 breaks in a band about 20 meters (65 feet) wide that reach for several miles in straight lines and curved rows over uneven mountain to the casual observers in the Nazca Plateau.
Individual holes measure on average a half a meter (25 inches) in diameter and complexity varies from less than a foot to two to three meters (six to seven feet) fervent.
A row has between nine to 12 pits. The best way the Band of Holes can be heed to b investigated is with an aerial view.
