FASCINATING NEW DISCOVERY.. Peruvian Pyramid Older Than Egypt, Civilization Rivals Sumerians In Age, 1200 Years Without War



Peruvian Pyramid Older Than Egypt, Civilization Rivals Sumerians In Age, 1200 Years Without War

Saturday, March 9, 2013 21:33

The lost Pyramids of Caral are older than suspected, construction began in 3000 B.C (300-400 years before the people of Kemet, Egypt began the Pyramid of Djoser). These cities flourished peacefully for more than 1,200 years. Something very different from all other civilizations is that this people lived without fears, in peace. No traces of warfare have been found, a finding that had to make archaeologists in the world to re-invent their thinking and theories about why tribal people built and moved into large cities.

The Andean Center for Archaeological Research, CIARA, has made an extraordinary discovery  in the Huaca Rosada Urban Center, located in the district of Ventanilla, Callao and which dates from 4500 years.The pyramid Huaca Pink belongs to the architectural tradition of Caral , which shows that the nation state of Caral is one of the oldest civilizations to be discovered. Caral was located in the Peruvian Barrranca provinces covering Huaura, Huaral, Lima, Callao, Huarmey and Casma, as well as the  Central Coast area and north-central Peru and influencing the Midwest of our country.

This finding confirms that Peru is the oldest civilization in America and one of the four oldest high cultures of the world, according to historian Victor Colan Ormeño  as we can see in the table below:

1.Mesopotamia 3500 BC2.Perú 3200 BC
3000 BC 3.Egipto
4.China 3000 BC
2600 BC 5.India
6.Creta 2000 BC
1200 BC 7.México
Moreover, Peru is one of the two oldest agricultural civilizations of the world, as we seen in the following table:

WORLD FIRST agricultural civilizations.

8000 BC 1.Mesopotamia
2.Perú 8000 BC
7000 BC 3.China
4.India 7000 BC
6000 BC 5.México

Reaffirming the extraordinary antiquity of Peruvian civilization, the radiocarbon dates of the last thirty years have shown that Peru has the world's oldest pyramids, as shown in the following table:


1. Idols 3702 BC Delos Huaca Peru
2. Easel 3120 BC Peru
3. Caral Peru 3000 BC
4. Bandurria 3000 BC Peru
5. Huaca of Sacrifice 2930 BC Peru
6. The 2800 BC Galgada Peru
7. 2700 BC Peru Tumshukaiko
8. 2668 BC Sakkara Egypt
9. Cheops Egypt 2580 BC
2550 BC Egypt 10.Kefrén
11.Micerino 2520 BC Egypt
12.Huaca Rosada (Window) Peru 2500 BC
2200 BC Ur 13.Zigurat Iraq
14.Sechín Peru 1800 BC
1200 BC Mexico 15.San Lorenzo.

Furthermore, we note that Caral, Peru was the most important city of the third millennium BC, in Peru and America and the first capital of the nation state of our country. It is also one of the first cities in the world as we can see in the table below:


1. 3200 BC Uruk Iraq
2. Caral Peru 3000 BC
3. Peru roughly 3000 BC
4. Bandurria 3000 BC Peru
5. 3000 BC Ur Iraq
6. Lingjitan 3000 BC China
7. Memphis 2850 BC Egypt
8. 2600 BC Mohenjo Daro Pakistan
9. 2600 BC Harappa Pakistan
Peru 10.Moxeque 1800 BC
1050 BC Israel 11.Jerusalén
12.Monte Alban 500 BC Mexico

The above shows that Peru is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. This new reality is the result of sacrifice and exemplary work of Peruvian  and foreign archaeologists including  Ruth Shady Solis, Robert Feldman, Moseley, Thomas Pozorski, Richard Burger, Carlos Williams, Paul Kosok, Friedrich Engel, Roxana Gomez Cesar Cornejo, Alex Zuniga, Alejandro Chu, Alberto Bueno, Luis Guillermo Lumbreras, among others.

 The fame of Caral as the oldest pyramid complex might be shortlived, accoring to Philip Coppens. He says,  "Archaeologists have found a 5,500-year-old ceremonial plaza at Sechin Bajo, in Casma, 229 miles north of Lima, the capital." 
Sechin Bajo is an ancient stone plaza in Casma in the Andes foothills, 330 kilometers (210 mi) northwest of Lima, Peru

The structure is one of the oldest surviving man-made buildings ever discovered in the Americas, dating to about 3500BC based on carbon dating. It may be one of the oldest buildings in the world.

The discovery was made by a team of the Latin American Institute at the Freie University in Berlin, under the auspices of Prof. Dr. Peter Fuchs. It contained a platform pyramid that was originally possibly up to 100 metres tall. Carbon dating shows it is one of the oldest structures ever found in the Americas.

Nearly 2,000 years later, another structure measuring 180 by 120 metres was added onto it. The discovery at Sechin Bajo means this pyramid complex is now even older than Caral."  See more f;rom Pilip Coppen here

The Norte Chico civilization (also Caral or Caral-Supe civilization) was a complex pre-Columbian society that included as many as 30 major population centers in what is now the Norte Chico region of north-central coastal Peru. It is the oldest known civilization in the Americas and one of the six sites where civilization separately originated in the ancient world. It flourished between the 30th century BC and the 18th century BC.

The alternative name, Caral-Supe, is derived from the Sacred City of Caral in the Supe Valley, a large and well-studied Norte Chico site. Complex society in Norte Chico arose a millennium after Sumer in Mesopotamia, was contemporaneous with the Egyptian pyramids, and predated the Mesoamerican Olmec by nearly two millennia.
