Anunnakis in the forgotten city of Caral

Situated about 200 km north of Lima, Peru, there is a breathtaking location: the city-state of Caral.


All over the world we have ruins that testify to the skill, knowledge, artistic and engineering ability of extinct civilizations. Often, for us modern humans, the works of the ancients seem almost impossible to have done, since, as far as we know, we live at the peak of human technological knowledge and we would not be able – even if we tried – to reproduce the architectural feats of our ancestors. .

But that, of course, as far as we know. And there is much that we do not know about the peoples who came before us, about their capabilities, technical knowledge and, above all, about how this knowledge was developed. In some archaeological sites it is still possible to see some kind of progression of techniques, but in others the feeling we have is that, all of a sudden, a people settled there and began to build monuments with a high level of engineering knowledge, also implying a good knowledge of mathematics, physics and geometry.

And what makes it even more interesting is that the further we go back in time, the more sophisticated and exquisite the buildings become, as the Gobekli Tepe site in Turkey shows us. The same happens in South America, more specifically in the Andean region, where the ruins defy all official explanations about their origin. And yet archeology refuses to accept that perhaps something extraordinary happened on our planet a few millennia ago—something that came from the stars.

Caral and its mysteries

Situated approximately 200 km north of Lima, Peru, there is a place that will take the breath of anyone interested in archaeology: the city-state of Caral. Its ruins were discovered in 1905, but it was not until 1949 that researchers realized that there was a majestic city there. In 1965, an aerial photograph taken by Paul Kosok, one of the scholars who had visited the site in 1949, revealed the extent of the site, evidencing an ensemble of great architectural complexity. At the time the place was still known as Chupacigarro Grande and although the extremely worn state of the stone ruins indicated that they were very old, it was not possible to determine how much. Kosok’s account was published in the book Life, Land and Water in Ancient Peru. Long Island University, 1965].

In 1975, Peruvian researchers led by Carlos William began to map the site, in the Supe Valley, and it was already suspected that those ruins could be much older than people said — and that the city could be contemporary with Egyptian, Chinese and Chinese civilizations. and Mesopotamian. Then, in 1997, due to discoveries made at the site, it was concluded that the urban complex was over 5,000 years old. 42 radiocarbon dates have been performed in the United States, pinning the city’s beginnings to 3000 BC and its decline to around 1800 BC, when the city appears to have been suddenly abandoned.

Peruvian archaeologist and anthropologist Ruth Shady, who rediscovered the archaeological site and began excavating it in 1996, identified another 18 settlements from the same period spread over 40 km. All were close to the coast in Vale do Supe, had the same architectural characteristics, shared the same traditions and constituted a large and well-organized network of communication and commerce, in which Caral played a central role. It was Ruth who ended up naming Chupacigarro Grande as Caral to set it apart from three other places that all had the same name, only differentiated by geographic orientation or size. She also renamed all the places that are now known as Caral, Chupacigarro, Miraya and Lurihuasi, which are the indigenous names of nearby villages. By the way, in the Quechua language, Caral means to give, indicating that it was a city dedicated to the service of religious offerings to the gods. In fact, several objects made of stone, bones and wood used in religious practices were found. Among them, ornaments and flutes made with the bones of the giant Condor bird.
