WEFOUNDArchaeological Researches in Costa Rica (Classic Reprint)


Tiwanaku (Spanish: Tiahuanaco and Tiahuanacu) is an important Pre-Columbian archaeological site in western Bolivia, South America.

TIAHUANUCO lies almost in the very centre of the great terrestrial basin of lakes Titicaca and Aullagas, and in the heart of a region which may be properly characterized as the Tibet of the New World. Here, at an elevation of twelve thousand nine hundred feet above the sea, in a broad, open, unprotected, arid plain, cold in the wet and frigid in the dry season, we find the evidences of an ancient civilization, regarded by many as the oldest and the most advanced of both American continents.  

Tiahuanacu (also called Tiwanaku) is a mystery because of its date of construction (estimated by A. Posnansky to be 15,000 B.C. ) and the peculiar stone technology.
