A further expedition was planned, but never materialised because of the start of World War II. As a result these lands descended and after the glacial masses had melted or retired from those zones, freed of their weight the territories rose again.

W hen the S ky F ell: In that age, especially in the first period, they did not yet build houses; their temples were semi-subterranean buildings. The accompanying text makes a strong case for treating the location as archaeologically raturo and as a consequence that many of the dates proposed for the site should be considered suspect.

As captain and owner of the shallow-draught steamer and blockade runnerIrisPosnansky rescued the survivors of the Acre garrison during the Acre Campaign in Brazil. Since olden times and also in our day, the question regarding possnansky age of Tihuanacu is one which has fascinated scholars and laymen alike.

Rafael Videla Eissmann is a Chilean historian and lecturer a. In the light of what has been set down before, it is not possible to doubt its purpose. The treasure hunters even searched beneath the immense blocks, such was the burning desire to find wealth.


During his lifetime, Posnansky was known as a prolific writer and researcher and for his active participation in the defense and development of Bolivia. The ruins are scattered over a number of square miles through which the Guayqui-La Paz railway was constructed, which was responsible for the breaking up of many monuments to provide ballast. The climatical cingulum has changed from the period of the apogee of this civilization to the present time. The blocks of red sandstone of the external north and south walls of Kalasasaya, which when they were constructed, had a regular form, were rather well carved and covered with ideosymbolic inscriptions on the inside, which is shown by a fragment saved by chance, Figs.

I prefer to accept the words of Plato, who unambiguously noted on two occasions that Atlantean territory stretched from southern Italy to North Africa, providing more rational launching pads for attacks on Greece and Egypt. The most remarkable collection of early photos of the Tiwanku site can be found on the Above Top Secret website b.

A gigantic image of red sandstone completely covered with inscriptions was found in the little temple of the First Period; this was a primitive rustic idol like those found near it, and had been retouched, one would say, during the Second, or more probably, during the Third Period.

However, it must be mentioned that the dating conclusions of Posnansky, Schoch, Bauval and Gilbert are all hotly disputed.

As for the author of this present work, as we have already pointed out, his first investigations in regard to the age of Tihuanacu, were carried out around the year By consulting the literature cited in the notes accompanying the text, complete and precise information may be had about all the subjects which have been treated very hastily in the present chapter. He had an intense interest in the prehistory of America and presented his views in the Proceedings of the prestigious Societe Scientifique du Chili The Scientific Society of Chile from until We repeat once again that the calculations with regard to the age of Tihuanacu are based solely and exclusively on the difference qrturo the obliquity of the ecliptic of the period in which that great temple was built and that which it has today.

James Bailey was an early advocate [ ] of a Posnansy Atlantis with its capital at Tiwanaku or Chan Chan, which was probably the largest pre-Colombian city in South America.

There are many probabilities for believing that Puma-Punku was almost completely covered by a dumping of alluvia which was swept away in part by very old searchings dating from much before the Conquest. Posnamsky is to be noted that at that time the line of sight passed perfectly through raturo reentrant angle of the first terrace and that was especially the case when the observation point at the center of the wall of the Second Period was at a height, as in fact it was, as is indicated by the above mentioned base which was discovered.

Commissioned by the company, the hydrographic survey of the Acre River took place. An ice core, 3 km long, which was recently recovered from Antarctica, has shown a continuous record stretching backyears.
