230 Ft Geoglyph Rediscovered in Peru

Archaeologists have rediscovered a long ‘lost’ geoglyph carved into a Peruvian hillside.

The remarkable depiction of a killer whale spans more than 200 feet, and is thought to date back more than 2,000 years, making it older than even the famous Nazca Lines that sit nearby.

Experts say the people who once inhabited the region considered the orca a powerful marine deity, and this particular geoglyph may be among the oldest in the area – but today, the site is threatened by ‘land traffickers.’
