  • Ancient City Discovered in Amazon Jungle

    Anthropologists living with and studying Amazon tribes have discovered a vast complex of structures deep in the Amazon rain forest.

    For the past 150 years explorers have traveled into the uncharted territory of the Amazonian drainage in search of the 'Lost City of Z'. Many never returned. The most famous was Percy Harrison Fawcett, a British geographer, artillery officer, cartographer, archaeologist and explorer of South America. In 1925, Fawcett disappeared during one of his expeditions to discover the lost city. Fawcett and others believed the ancient city was the remains of El Dorado in the jungles of Brazil.

    Noted Amazon cartographer, Imal Ostfirgud has mapped the ancient city complex which comprises an area that rivals downtown Dallas. "It is quite a discovery and there is no telling what's concealed under the jungle floor.

    Archaeologist Wheriman Ow has fully unearthed one of the largest structures that he believes shares more in common with ancient temples in India than it does with other Meso-American structures. "The architecture and masonry bear striking resemblances to the Bhulsh Eit temple in Pushkar."

    Ancient artifacts litter the floor. Several of the stone tools are types and materials that have never before been documented. "Documenting this site will be decades-long undertaking", says Bolivian archaeologist April Fuhl.

      Just finished book a good read, soon to be a movie. You would not believe the pain suffering and death those early explorers went through. The Spanish in the 1500's reported huge cities in the Amazon basin but the diseases they carried with them all but wiped out the indigenous peoples and when Fawcett explored the area in the early 1900's the jungle had all but obliterated the sites and few indians remained. Good stuff!!

      No one caught the date of the article and the supposed related site in India?

      FTA: "The architecture and masonry bear striking resemblances to the Bhulsh Eit temple in Pushkar."

      Doobie, it's and annual tradition around here. Once you know about it, you generally play along or don't comment so others can figure it out.
