Julian Ryall, of The Telegraph, has written an exciting article about 24 newly discovered geoglyphs in Peru's Nazca Plateau which are thought to have been created between 400 B.C. to 200 B.C.,
 much older than the famous glyphs protected by UNESCO World Heritage status
(400 A.D. to 650 A.D.).

"Yamagata University first started to study the Nazca Lines in 2004 and set up a full-scale research centre in Peru in 2012. To date, its researchers have located approximately 400 ancient, man-made lines and about 50 geoglyphs that are recognizable as being of animals."
