In the following video, researcher and archaeologist, Brien Foerster explore the mysterious Palpa Lines. The series of ancient geoglyphs are located in the Palpa Valley in southern Peru. Hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized human and animal forms.
Although some local geoglyphs resemble Nazca motifs, some scholars like Foerster, believe the Lines were created by the Paracas, an earlier and more advanced culture.
Though not as famous as the Nazca Lines and Geoglyphs, those at nearby Palpa are perhaps equally intriguing. Made by the Paracas culture possibly as much as 1000 years prior to the Nazca Lines, there are more than 1600 Palpa Lines and Geoglyphs.Brien Foerster
