"Beneath the Nasca Lines and Other Coastal Geoglyphs of Peru and Chile"

Member, David Johnson's book, "Beneath the Nasca Lines and Other Coastal Geoglyphs of Peru and Chile," is now available!

"This well-illustrated text provides Nasca Lines enthusiasts, researchers, tourists and coastal residents of Peru and Chile with an exciting new theory for one of the functions of the coastal geoglyphs of Peru and Chile. The author’s research, undertaken over a period of 12 years, also broadened our knowledge of the region’s geology, hydrology and archaeology.
In 1996 while locating groundwater sources near Nasca, Peru, David Johnson realized that aquifers (areas of higher permeability), which were not recorded in modern times, crossed the Atacama Desert. As he documented these aquifers he realized that most of the ancient Nasca Lines (geoglyphs) documented their flow patterns. By studying the correlation between geology, hydrology, archaeology and the geoglyphs, he realized that geoglyphs could be used to locate aquifers. During the initial investigation he collaborated with scientists from the Geosciences and Anthropology Departments of the University of Massachusetts."
