Tiwanaku, Bolivia
Tiwanaku In the holograms of reality, and the myths within, Tiwanaku is another ancient civilization whose timeline came and went, leaving behind megalithic monuments that go without explanation as to their mathematical design and construction. Considered by some the oldest city in the world, much of Tiwanaku's creation defies the laws of physics and mathematics even by today's standards. Many monuments bear close resemblance to those created by other ancient cultures all over the planet, truly an overlap if one were to place hologram over hologram, to define the journey of humanity in time. As with many other sacred sites throughout the planet Tiwanaku remains an enigma allowing researchers to speculate on its origins and purpose then parallel that with other ancient civilizations left behind by unknown beings surviving in time with great stone markers which bear clues to humanity's creation story.

Do these mysterious stones mark the site of the Garden of Eden? By Tom Knox Updated: 11:10 GMT, 5 March 2009 For the old Kurdish shepherd, it was just another burning hot day in the rolling plains of eastern Turkey. Following his flock over the arid hillsides, he passed the single mulberry tree, which the locals regarded as 'sacred'. The man looked left and right: there were similar stone rectangles, peeping from the sands. They certainly were important. The site has been described as 'extraordinary' and 'the most important' site in the world A few weeks after his discovery, news of the shepherd's find reached museum curators in the ancient city of Sanliurfa, ten miles south-west of the stones. They got in touch with the German Archaeological Institute in Istanbul. As he puts it: 'As soon as I got there and saw the stones, I knew that if I didn't walk away immediately I would be here for the rest of my life.' Remarkable: The intricate carvings were done by humans who had not mastered language or other basic skills Schmidt stayed. So far, so remarkable.

Buscando a Tiahuanaco De todas las manifestaciones representativas de las culturas pre-incaicas, la que me causó más curiosidad desde niño fue siempre la Portada del Sol. Mientras el profesor Aparicio, en segundo grado de primaria, nos explicaba el legado que la cultura Tiahuanaco heredó a los incas, al ver la foto de la Portada del Sol en el texto escolar, me imaginaba cómo sería estar allí parado en la puerta, bajo el dintel esculpido en piedra. Aunque suene extraño, como que le agarré cierto cariño a esa imagen. Cada vez que la veía, me repetía a mi mismo: ¡Algún día estaré allí! La noche acababa de bañar de un negro azulado el cielo del altiplano peruano. En ese momento tenía dos opciones: regresar a Sillustani antes del amanecer o buscar mi siguiente destino: la Portada del Sol. Mi primera reacción fue de asombro. Despertando en la ciudad binacional Llegué a Desaguadero (3,810 m.s.n.m.) alrededor de la medianoche. Un limeño en suelo boliviano - ¿Quién se baja en Tiahuanaco? La Portada del Sol

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 Thibet of the New World. It was to explore and investigate the monumental remains that have made this spot celebrated that I had come to Tiahuannco, and I lost no time in commencing my task. This was not my only difficulty. The ruins are about half a mile to the southward of the village, separated from it by a small brook and a shallow valley.

Stonehenge Rebuilt How They Rebuilt Stonehenge For decades the official Stonehenge guidebooks have been full of fascinating facts and figures and theories surrounding the world's greatest prehistoric monument. What the glossy brochures do not mention, however, is the systematic rebuilding of the 4,000 year old stone circle throughout the 20th Century. The restoration has been kept elusive and a large percentage of vacationers sitting in their hotels in London, planning a trip to the monument, have no idea that they aren't getting the full story." This is one of the dark secrets of history archaeologists don't talk about: The day they had the builders in at Stonehenge to recreate the most famous ancient monument in Britain as they thought it ought to look. From 1901 to 1964, the majority of the stone circle was restored in a series of makeovers which have left it, in the words of one archaeologist, as 'a product of the 20th century heritage industry'.

Signs of Atlantis found in southern Spain: scientists - Health Scientists say they may have discovered the lost city of Atlantis buried deep under the marshlands of southern Spain. The legendary city is believed to have been "swallowed up by the sea," as the Greek philosopher Plato so famously put it 2,400 years ago. He wrote of a great city destroyed by floodwaters following an earthquake deep under the sea — an image that resonates at a time when Japan is struggling to recover from a devastating earthquake and tsunami off its northeast coast. A National Geographic television special that aired on Sunday details the work of American, Canadian and Spanish scientists as they attempt to prove Atlantis existed by following up on space satellite images showing unusual features in an area just north of Cadiz. The area is near the Straits of Gibraltar — widely thought to be the "Pillars of Hercules" Plato mentioned in his description of the location of Atlantis. The team is led by archaeologist Richard Freund of the University of Hartford in Connecticut.

ETNOHISTORIA DE TIWANAKU Waldo Villamor Michel LP 2009 La presencia del precerámico en el valle de Tiwanaku, fue identificado por Eduardo Berberián y Danilo Kuljis, en las cercanías del núcleo escolar de la comunidad de Pillapi (Pillapi 1), y en el lado sur de la plaza (Pillapi 2); a la margen izquierda del camino carretero que pasa por la comunidad de Yanarico y en el sitio Pakollo, ubicado en las estribaciones de la serranía de Lakaya Pata, en la comunidad de Kasa Achuta. A su vez los arqueólogos Juan Albarracin y Mathews 1991, identificaron otros posibles sitios a los cuales ficharon con las claves LV-19, LV-161, y dos sitios aislados LV-e y LV-g. Mientras que el período formativo estaba representado por ocupación de índole Chiripa de la fase Mamani. Aunque posteriormente las investigaciones del arqueólogo estadounidense Alan Kolata, determinarían que el radio urbano de Tiwanaku se extendió por 600 h. 1547 Ticona, Cacique principal Ychota, Segunda persona 1589 Francisco Apasa, Cacique Felipe Cuvi, Segunda Persona

Tiwanaku Empire Chronologie et description The Tiwanaku Empire (also spelled Tiahuanaco) dominated portions of what is now Peru, Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia in South America for four hundred years (AD 550-950). The capital city, also called Tiwanaku, was located on the southern shores of Lake Titicaca, on the border between Bolivia and Peru. Tiwanaku Chronology Tiwanaku IV (Tiwanaku Period), AD 400-800 Tiwanaku V, AD 800-1150 The capital city of Tiwanaku lies in the high river basins of the Tiwanaku and Katari rivers, at altitudes between 4200 and 3800 meters above sea level. Tiwanaku Lifestyles Because of their high elevation, crops grown by the Tiwanaku were limited to frost-resistant plants such as potatoes and quinoa. During the Late Formative period, the Tiwanaku Empire was in direct competition with the Huari empire, located in central Peru. Far-flung places where Tiwanaku artifact styles, architecture or people have been identified include San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, Juch'uypampa Cave in Bolivia, and Chan Chan in Peru.

White Europeans 'only evolved 5,500 years ago after food habits changed' By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 13:58 GMT, 31 August 2009 People in England may have only developed pale skin within the last 5,500 years, according to new research. Scientists believe that a sudden change in the diet around that time from hunter-gathering to farming may have led to a dramatic change in skin tone to make up for a lack of vitamin D. Farmed food is lacking in vitamin D and while humans can produce it when exposed to the ultraviolet light in sunlight darker skin is far less efficient at it. People with pale skin may be descended from Europeans who dramatically changed their diets after switching from hunter-gathering to farming Scientists at the University of Oslo believe this change in diet may have led to our dark-skinned ancestors evolving paler skin to overcome this problem. The link between skin colour and Vitamin D from sunlight has been suggested before. Children with fair skins are able to get their daily dose of Vitamin D with just 10 to 20 minutes in the sun.

Tiahuanaco (300-800) La civilización Tiahuanaco se desarrolló en el altiplano (Taipicalá) entre Bolivia y Perú; y su primera descripción se la debemos al soldado español Pedro Cieza de León.Encontramos sus orígenes en el intermedio temprano y como antecesor a la civilización Pucará. El termino “Tya Guanaco” que en quechua significaría “sientate y descansa guanaco”, según algunos mitos o leyendas recogidas en la Paz (Bolivia), indican... "que cuando el Inca conquistó la zona del Collao quedó sorprendido con los raudos mensajeros, además de la organización y rapidez con que se intercambiaban productos que llegaban de diferentes zonas ecológicas o pisos altitudinales: de tal manera que los Taipicala podían consumir gran variedad de productos. Por ello, el inca llamó a un mensajero y le dijo “Tya Guanaco” ¡siéntate y descansa guanaco!
