Nazca Lines: English Presentation

Marko, aquí te dejo la información ;D:


Nazca Lines are series of Ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in Souther Perú. Nazca Lines were designated a UNESCO world heritage in 1994. This lines are in a high and arid plateau that stretches more than eighty kilometres between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Panpas de Jumana. Some Scholars believe that Nazca Lines were created by Nazca Culture around the 500 B.C.

What are they?

How I said before Nazca Lines are series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert. Hundreds of them are simple lines or geometric shapes. Others, exactly more than seventy of this Nazca Lines are designs of animals like Fish, Monkey, Sharks, Birds, Spiders, Humming birds, lizards, or mytoglogical animals and human figures. The largest figure is over 200 metres across.
This can mean that Nazca culture loved the nature and wanted to be remembered during the time.

Alternative theories:

yes, Some individuas have suggested other theories that explains the creation of the Nazca Lines. For example: the Scholar Jim Woodmann thinks that Nazca Lines couldn't have been made without a technology that allow to fly and see the figures completely. and they hadn't in that time a really advanced thechnology so how could they created the Nazca Lines. Well, Woodmann mantains that the only posibility is a hot air ballon where three people would mantain the flight and one look the figure that is being created.
