GEOGLIFOS OF SAN IGNACIO


The first geoglifos discovered them Julio C. Tello together with Alfred Kroeber and Toribio Mejía in 1926, near the town of Cantalloq. They didn't give them bigger importance. Single figure a stealthy article written by Toribio Mejía in 1942.

The first scientific discovery of the geoglifos was in 1941, with Paul's works Kosok in San Ignacio's Pampas and Llipata in he/she Feels. Then they followed it María Reiche and Hans Horkheimer. Kosok made the first traveled on foot by the plateaus and gulches to the south of Llipata and it was there where he/she discovered the first figure that it marked the setting of the Sun, June of 1941, 22 day of the winter solstice. The event was the beginning so that he/she thought about the hypothesis of the astronomical function of the geoglifos. But with the new investigations, the idea disappeared.

Mathematical María Reiche traveled for the first time to Nasca and he/she found other lines marking the setting of the sun December of 1941, 21 day of the summer solstice.Hans Horkheimer traveled San Ignacio's Pampas and Llipata in 1946 and he/she found the same combination of lines, figures and trapezes reported by Kosok and it published the first outlines and pictures in 1947. It also registered several geoglifos in other regions of the basin of the Big River of he/she Feels and Nasca.

In the later years María Reiche carried out many journeys on foot for the same pampas, after having studied the air pictures of the Service detailedly National (SAN) Aerofotográfico. Although there is not any scientific report on these works, in the first articles of Reiche important several geoglifos is mentioned and one very big that found in San Ignacio's plateau. The longest that knew was. He/she also made reference to anthropomorphous several figures that he/she saw in the hillsides of the plateaus and envelope the figure of a pelican, the biggest in San Ignacio's Pampas.

However, although the first lines that he/she found were in he/she Feels, it never published a map of the figures of San Ignacio's Pampas and Llipata, as those that it elaborated for the Pampas of Nasca. The only reference in those plans, they are some of the biggest geoglifos, pointed out in a synoptic map of the whole basin.

The pictures of the SAN and other air takings of some important drawings of San Ignacio's Pampas and Llipata were published at the beginning of the 2000 together with other unpublished images in the region. But for the Peruvian archaeologist Johny Island, the great part of the material has a mistaken location, originated in the lack of a systematic mapeo of the geoglifos. On the other hand, him yes it used, together with their German colleague Markus Reindel, the modern technology fotogramétrica that has allowed them to create a virtual trip of sobrevuelo for all the Lines of he/she Feels.

The fotogrametría applied by the Archaeological Project Feels sandal the Crest of Sacramento, the Hill Carapo, San Ignacio's Pampas and Llipata. It is the first database that has registered scientifically, one for a, those lines that you/they have gotten the attention of curiosity of the world.
