Ancient astronomy

South American archaeologists working on a complex at Licurnique, in the northern Lambayeque region of Peru, have discovered the place where ancient people stood to observe the heavens between 3,500 and 4,000 years ago. The petroglyphs engraved on an adjacent flat-surface rock (IMAGE ABOVE) indicate that they tracked the stars and likely used the information to forecast rain and weather patterns to help farmers. Excavators Juan Martinez and Manuel Curo remark, It is worth exploring without a doubt.”
