A team of archaeologists has discovered a astronomical laboratory in Peru between 3,500 and 4,000 years old, which has managed to survive the climatic conditions of the region.

Located in the Licurnique depositIn the north of the country, researchers have found a carved stone altar with astronomical functions, which were used to track stars and be able to predict rainfall, essential for crops in the area.

Manuel Curo and Juan Martínez, the archaeologists who have located the site, have commented that “it is rare to find a complex that combines influences from the ancient inhabitants of the region, Andean and Hispanic”.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more.
