The Indians knew the water: they began the year surprises archaeologists

January 8 2006

Symbolically, one of the first breaking news this year is related to archeology. At the foot of the Andes in northern Peru, discovered the remains of the oldest of the irrigation canals in South America. This finding can explain the emergence of civilizations in this region, which are based on agriculture.

"There are at least four places in the area where channels have been created around 5.300 years ago, and, perhaps, even earlier," - says Tom D. Dillhey, an archaeologist from the American University of Vanderbilt in Nashville.

The scientist began his studies almost 30 years ago in the valley, Zana, 60 kilometers from the Pacific coast. Research findings provide convincing evidence that irrigation technology has become so key "tool" that is creating an early Peruvian civilization.

Such irrigation systems are found in Lake Baikal expedition "These systems were built Buryat, who in turn borrowed them from the Evenki. According to scientists, they are no less brilliant than the known Sumerian, - said Andrei Polyakov, a famous journalist, a researcher of antiquities. - And on the Cape Rytom, where we studied the so-called Baikal Stounhendzh , there is also a system of irrigation. According to Valentine Hagdaeva known Olkhon shaman, it was built in ancient times.

Another interesting fact that Ryty divided pereoshshey riverbed of the river into two parts: one is located a stone system, called Stonehenge, on the other - the irrigation system. Judging by the conclusions of archaeologists, pottery, we found the ruins, was about 4 thousand years ago. As we see, at this time centers rather advanced civilization were scattered all over the world. "

As we see, begins in 2006 is interesting and, apparently, we will witness new discoveries. It was also the last year. Do archaeologists and enthusiasts were a lot of work, as we have repeatedly told our readers.

Recall that one of the most sensational finds were made public in October. In the central part of Bosnia near the village of Visoko was found folded manually peaked pyramid. The pyramid of great size, and according to geological analysis was set from 10 to 20 thousand years ago. It is oriented to the cardinal and reminds facilities that had previously been detected in Latin America.

Besides the pyramids, the 18-meter depth, scientists discovered the remains of ancient labyrinths, and other objects whose presence indicates that there once was a settlement.

"We received the first results and the first proof. At the same time, according to the history of Bosnia, such designs could not appear in the last 500, 800, or two thousand years This is an indication that we are talking about some super civilization that existed in this area earlier ", - said the Bosnian explorer Shemer Osmanagich.

Another discovery led researchers to reconsider their assumptions about when there was civil society. We are talking about the found four years ago in the Syrian-Iraqi border city, which flourished around 6 thousand years ago.

Unusual and sophisticated in terms of building the ancient city was destroyed by invaders 5,500 years ago. The fact that this was the city, and not a settlement, indicate massive walls, huge ceramic furnace, as well as a unique print, which were used by the townspeople.

These findings confirm the fact of the emergence in the social and legal relations. In the heyday of Hamukare population of approximately 3 thousand people, and the city center was located at a distance of 100 miles from modern Mosul in Iraq.

At the same time, the excavations showed that the city is actively engaged in trade, and this could have caused his death because of trade wars. Among the remnants of a civilization that managed to dig out from under the ground - the pots made on a potter's wheel, representing a small graceful vessels with walls no thicker shell eggs, figurines with large spiral-shaped eyes and many fragments of ceramics.

Before the remnants of this unique city have been found by archaeologists in the arid plains of Syria, experts have assumed that the first civilization originated far south of this place, to the south of Mesopotamia. That is where lies a set of palm trees and marshland and ponds were suitable for fishing, ancient people began to lay the future of the city walls of Uruk.

He is considered the first city, which appeared another 4 thousand years ago. Excavations in Hamukare completely refuted previously existing theories. Found the city was located far north of Uruk. But mostly sensational discovery was that the city appeared a thousand years before Uruk.

In preparing the material used:
