The Nazca
Lines Peruvian archaeologist Toribo Mejia Xesspe
discovered the lines while hiking in the hills of the
peruvian mountains in 1927. Scientists think that
these lines were made between 200-600 A.D.
Still remaining mysterious is how they built the
lines. We believe, that they drew designs, enlarged
them on a grid, and were carved by workers into
the sand. The shape The Discovery Preservation If you want to find more good nazca lines

Bibliography Some people may wonder how the
Nazca lines stayed in formation over
the years. The answer is that their
surroundings are full of rocks and
hardly gets any rain, causing it to be
dry with hardly any wind.
The Nazca Lines are big lines forming creatures and shapes in the ground,
but no one knows who made them. Some scientists think that the lines
could have been paths to bodies of water. Others think that
