Bolivia detects buried pyramid at Tiahuanaco site

The government of Bolivia announced it will start exploratory excavations this year at the ancient fortress of Tiahuanaco after a buried pyramid was detected.

Ludwing Cayo, director of the Tiahuanaco Archeological Research Center, told Efe that the formation is located in the area of Kantatallita, east of the Akapana pyramid.

In a presentation for the media, Cayo outlined a five-year for further research at Tiahuanaco, an archaeological site 71 kilometers (44 miles) west of La Paz that was the cradle of an ancient civilization predating the Incas.

Excavations may start in May or June, depending on the timing of cooperation agreements with foreign universities and institutes to enroll more forensic archaeology experts in the effort, Cayo said.

Besides the pyramid, ground-penetrating radar has detected "a number of underground anomalies" that might be monoliths, but those findings require more detailed analysis.

1. The photos of the uncovering of the pyramid so far are astonishing.

I'll bet so many, many people figured that what they had found there was all there was, after all this time.

Can't begin to get over how exciting this discovery is. It almost makes you wish you could go there to do volunteer work to hurry it all along! I doubt they would want that, however, with millions of lookie-lous stumbling around looking over their shoulders.

You've dropped an incredibly excitement-packed surprise on us, Ichingcarpenter. It's going to be so hard waiting for the next information.

2. those photos are not the pyramid that was just announced.

its suppose to be east of those, I've been searching on google to find the topography map of what lies to the east of that pyramid in that photo but can't find a good one. I want to know if its a hill buried pyramid or really something even more exciting like one under the plains...

Yeah its exciting, maybe we can find more news on this subject .... can you search in Spanish for us?

3. I found this interesting site, although it doesn't mention the new information. It's from 2014,

and has images from someone's trip to Tiahuanaco. The small images, at least the one I just tested, turn out into big ones, and I'm going to look through them later this evening:

Here's the one I saw:



MY TRIP TO TIAHUANACO AND PUMA PUNKU IN BOLIVIA

10-27 August 2014

by Birgitte Knaus

(Google translation)

Here we share some pictures from our first trip to Tiwanaku and

Puma Punku, which is located about 4,000 meters above the highlands of Bolivia. Within this huge valley, there was once a great city, which later was tragically destroyed by what appears to be a huge explosion of a meteorite or a prehistoric atomic bomb, as was the case with the city of Daorsen in Bosnia or in Sumeria and India.

These blocks were constuidos makes thousands, perhaps even tens of thousands of years and everything was destroyed in a cataclysm, eons back in time.

It is amazing to see this kind of perfection, the way they worked masonry, long before the last ice on our planet.

These buildings were not made by the Incas, if not earlier by an ancient advanced civilization and eventually was forgotten.

I've been busy downloading over a thousand images, classifying and soon will command over Lake Titicaca, Island of the Moon and the Sun and especially the Salar de Uyuni!

May you enjoy the pictures I took during this trip in August 2014!

I want to start looking around for some information later this evening. I hope I can find something but I didn't see the great new stuff, yet. I really want to know, if anything pops up.

7. Have never seen aerial views of these sites until your post.What a difference that quadcopter makes.

The man/author who produced the videos says he will be adding more.

It's wonderful seeing them this way. I appreciate the amplified perspective.

Sure hope they will be moving more of the mud out in the near future.

9. It was awful when this video ended! Mesmerizing. What scale! Beyond belief.

What a shock it would have been for the Spanish who "conquered" these people, realizing on sight that the area around Cuzco was far more heavily populated than any city in Europe at the time they left to come rape, pillage, and destroy in the Americas.

Thank you for both the video and the stunning stills of the huge stones in the wall.

So much to learn. It's compelling. What a great time for the internet to have become available to the public.

Someone was doing a little "showing off" with the giant stone walls. Surely they would have realized their accomplishments were so extraordinary people thousands of years later would become completely befuddled looking at them!

10. The Inca said they didn't build any of these sites we discussed

this place was also not really occupied by the Incas when the spainards came.

As a old builder in the construction trade, I do look at ancient structures and can see very different styles and expertise within the same structures which hints that the older structures seem more advanced and the Incas took over the structures......... the Inca empire was only 200 years in the making and they were geniuses in their own right........ but something else was going on that we don't know about and its very ancient.

The stones on that wall are 200 to 300 tons and fit like a glove................try moving that stone back and forth in and out up and down to make it fit.

13. I heard it, too. Structures were in place before the Incas arrived.

What a breakthrough it would be if only a shred of evidence ever was produced concerning THEIR identity, and their world.

Unbelievably interesting.

14. Had to stop and look at these images on a second pass by! Can't resist it.

How that was ever accomplished is mind-boggling.

5. Why are they calling it

an ancient fortress? I thought it was a ceremonial center and town.

11. Fortress

It's my understanding that the estimated size of the structure (having four walls and a roof) and the theory it was blown apart, people are now saying its a fortress...you posted in april, maybe you found out more info? I don't completely get it, I'm just sharing what I know.

12. Thanks!

New information is my guess. It's about time more attention is being paid to South American history.

I see more information was posted, I think...I don't remember seeing those wonderful pictures of the huge stones or the fly over. Incredible!
Or I just don't remember...😳



I see this is your first post, welcome!
