Mystery Name: Earthworks and Geoglyphs in the Brazilian Amazon
Place Name: Acre State
Hundreds of more than 2000 year old earthworks and geoglyphs have been found beneath the brazilian amazon rainforest.
The Excavation is still ongoing but here’ s a first statement of research-scientist Jennifer Watling:
It is likely that the geoglyphs were used for similar functions to the Neolithic causewayed enclosures, i.e. public gathering, ritual sites. It is interesting to note that the format of the geoglyphs, with an outer ditch and inner wall enclosure, are what classicly describe henge sites. The earliest phases at Stonhenge consisted of a similarly layed-out enclosure.
