More geoglyphs found on the Nazca Lines site in Peru

One of the new Nazca lines.

Once again, a team of archaeologists from Japan’s Yamagata University have discovered new Nazca Lines, this time announcing that they’ve spotted 168 previously undocumented geoglyphs on the Pampas de Juman in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru.

Hundreds of mysterious drawings, often monumental in scale, dot the Peruvian landscape, many of them visible only from an aerial view. The newly identified figures on the desert sands depict humans, camelids, birds, killer orca whales, cats, and snakes, and are thought to date to between 100 B.C.E. and 300 C.E.
