Aerial survey reveals 168 previously undetected Nazca Lines in Peru

In the Aja region near the Peruvian city of Nazca, archaeologists have discovered 168 previously unknown geoglyphs created by Indigenous people more than a thousand years ago – often referred to as the Nazca Lines.

The newly found geoglyphs include outlines of humans, camelids, birds, killer whales, felines, and snakes. It is unknown why prehistoric people shaped the Nazca Lines, but one idea is that these features helped create the Nazca Lines. Nazca people find water in the desert.
