Discovered Objects

Here are most of the features that we have found, and that we believe are relevant to the Incas. If you are interested in the methods of our research, then read the “Research Technology” section of this site.

Inca Road Network

We studied terrain parameters, interpreted satellite imagery, and referred it to already known ruins and Inca trails. As a result we managed to reconstruct ancient Inca road system for the region of our study.
