Was there a hidden country under the ice of Antarctica more than 30 million years ago? This is what a recent scientific study reveals

Stewart Jamieson, a glaciologist at Durham University in Britain and lead author of the paper, said: “It’s an undiscovered landscape – no one has laid eyes on it.”

In this context, it is worth highlighting that hills and valleys, even with rivers, have been discovered in Antarctica. Of course, these cannot be fully visible due to the freezing. However, as a result of global warming, these could become visible to humans, as reported by El Cronista.

It is no small fact that 34 million years have passed before scientists have been able to reach this conclusion. And, to gain such knowledge about this area, the specialists used satellite images in combination with radioelectric measurements.

What is the archaeological discovery in Peru that left specialists stunned?

During restoration work on the perimeter walls of the Utzh An walled complex, the former Great Chimú palace of the Chan Chan Archaeological Complex, located in the province of Trujillo, a team of researchers from the Ministry of Culture (Mincul) found an archaeological discovery that has left them stunned due to its content and location. Below, we tell you what it is about.

The director of the restoration project of the walls, Sinthya Cueva, reported that disarticulated bone remains of 11 individuals were found, which were accompanied by three pairs of ear ornaments and two bead necklaces, as well as Spondylus shells, which are items that belonged to individuals of a high administrative rank from the time of the Chimú culture.

“There are some possible assumptions, such as that they were high-ranking figures because they were adorned with ear ornaments with pectorals. We also have the bead necklaces and this shell (Spondylus); however, the bone remains are disarticulated, meaning they have been altered, so it will be necessary to determine what caused this alteration,” said the professional.

The expert also mentions that the area where the remains were found was not designed to be a cemetery, but there is a possibility that it was converted into one after it was abandoned. This information will be corroborated at the end of the investigations and analysis that the team of specialists will carry out.

Additionally, Sinthya Cueva pointed out that there is a possibility of finding more Chimú vestiges, since similar situations have occurred in previous years, according to the Andina news agency.

“During the 2017-2018 intervention, an entrance with sculptures, some patios and some very ornate corridors were found, also associated with funerary contexts; then, in 2022, we found an important context of 25 individuals with significant offerings on the south side, precedents that indicate that we are in an important archaeological complex,” he said.
