A new archaeological fortress, known as Manco Pata, was discovered in the town of Kimbiri (Cusco), located in the Apurímac-Ene River Valley (VRAE), announced the mayor of the town, Guillermo Torres.In his statements, he pointed out that the fortress was located in the rural community “Unión Vista Alegre”, of the village of Lobo Tahuantinsuyo, and covers an area of 40,000 square meters.Last December 29, after clearing the area of brush, beautiful and enigmatic structures built of large stones were found. They were perfectly cut and formed high walls.
Considering the findings, the mayor explained that this fortress could be part of the lost citadel of Paititi, which is the name for a kind of Inca or pre-Inca lost city-state.
Despite many Western prejudices, the Amerind cultures of many thousands of years ago are proving to be very advanced culturally. Some have the bad rep of bloody human sacrifices so the gods will continue to bestow good weather for crops (Mayans through Aztecs) and that offends our 21st Century sensibilities. But can we honestly say that’s any worse than the Spartans leaving infants in the elements to prove their hardiness, or Alexander The Great’s military campaigns through South Asia, Caesar wiping out the Celts almost, William The Conquerer or the Vikings for that matter? Western culture was born in blood, who are we to judge the Amerinds?
Recently another ancient city was discovered in Peru. One that is purported to be the same age or older than Egypt, or Sumer. Western archeologists are loath to admit the site is that old and they are hesitant to certify it. Also, it’s disproving the theory that civilization was born in blood and war, but trade and peace.

Time to rethink the paradigm I believe.
