Analyzing New York State’s Archaeology based on Peruvian and Southwestern United States Surveys
Although Johnson has been associated with New York State archaeology for the last 45 years, he didn’t realize he was missing something here in New York State until 1996, when he discovered a correlation existed between Peru’s Nasca Lines and groundwater. During the last fifteen years his research team has provided considerable evidence indicating many of the ancient Nasca Lines map the course of aquifers from the Andes, across Peru and Chile’s coastal desert, to the Pacific coast. Eventually he expanded his study to include the southwestern United States and found a similar correlation existed between Chacoan Roads, archaeological sites and aquifers in Arizona and New Mexico. As in Peru and Chile surface features mapped the flow of aquifers. This led him to wonder if Native Americans used similar techniques in the northeast, especially New York State, for the same purpose. Interestingly, preliminary data suggests this theory also applies to our region. During his presentation he will present the similarities between these regions regarding surface mapping and aquifers.
David Johnson has been a member of the New York State Archaeology Association since he was sixteen years old. He is a National Geographic Research and Exploration recipient for his research on the Nasca Lines and has written several articles and a book on this subject. Currently he is collaborating with archaeologists in Peru, Arizona, New Mexico and New York to develop a better understanding of how ancient Native Americans were able to locate and map groundwater resources.
