News: Peruvian. British explorers discover new Machu Picchu

 
Lima. Apr. 01 (ANDINA)- Peruvian and British explorers say they have discovered a lost Inca city on a peak in the Andes that was used as a place of resistance against Spanish conquerors.

According to the BBC News website. the site -which was already known to local people- may provide an unparalleled record of Inca civilisation. as the area was hardly touched by conquistadors.

The ruins. about 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. are in an area where an Inca army held out against the 16th Century invaders.

The expedition leader. British explorer Peter Frost. said the site was the biggest of its kind found since 1964 and could have been occupied by the Incas when they took to the hills after the Spanish conquest.

It may also hold evidence that could shake up theories of Inca expansion and may force scholars to rethink their ideas about when the Incas first expanded their empire.

It is the first find of its kind in four decades
 
'It's a jigsaw puzzle. What we're finding are more pieces... to get a better sense of what was happening in that area.' Frost said.

At the site. called Corihuayrachina. explorers found signs of a well-developed and sophisticated settlement. including a heavily looted. but still spectacular. sacred ceremonial platform.

Hidden in thick forest on Mount Victoria in the remote Vilcabamba region. the ruins so far consist of 12 sites with more than 100 structures. including circular homes. storehouses. cemeteries. funeral towers. roadways. waterworks. farming terraces. a dam and a truncated pyramid.

Peter Frost first spotted it when he and a colleague were hiking on a nearby ridge in 1999. But its remote location and tough terrain meant it took them another two years to organise the first expedition.
