What the heck IS this place? It's enormous, but it's all just fricking empty walls and spaces. There's nothing left here that looks like it was an abandoned city, rather, it's just enormous EMPTY WALLS.

This isn't some babylonian city, this was the largest city in south america only 400-500 years ago!! Something like the huaca de luna is twice as old as this place, yet still retain colorful painted walls and remnants of its time.

BUT THIS IS JUST MILES OF EMPTY WALLS. I've never seen this with a prehispanic city before.

      But that's not true! Outside of the reconstrcuted structures, teotihuacan's ruins are all covered with extravagant painted colors and murals, very well preserved. pic-related type stuff. Here there's just nothing.

      Lol so a mud brick town built 500 years ago that was less technologically advanced that a Babylonian city built 3,900 years ago.
      Yep, typical native American shit.

      I figured I'd get a response like this. It's not at all typical of most native american ruins I've seen. Not to mention the size of this place is uncanny.

        South America is full of the most dodgy archeology imaginable. If the amazing artifact or building doesn't exist, just create it instead!!!

        Wow, amazing. I don't care.

          Well unless you mean to imply that archaeologists went in and hand-painted and fabricated all the murals and colorful decorations commonly found in sites like teotihuacan and huaca de luna, then what you say here has no relevance to the thread, moron. Lawls

            Why would you need to reconstruct something that already exists? South Americans definitely painted walls but painting new walls is not beyond the insanity of Native American archeology.

            You seem to have no idea what this thread is about. I'm not talking about reconstructions, idiot.

            Nobody reconstructed the murals at those sites I mentioned, and I'm not interested in any sites with speculative reconstructions of paintings, if they exist.

            I wouldn't trust South Americans to not manufacture new murals. You guys are the worst.

            The earliest Mesoamerican writing is almost certainly a forgery.

            Nothing in that Wikipedia article says that it's "almost certaintly a forgery", just that some argheologists that weren't even involved in the project we're skeptical about it

            The problem is that south American countries are very poor and they have a long history of making forgeries for money. This hasn't ended and has in fact become worse over time with even wealthy people and academics joining in.

    Maybe they used the walls as support and the rest of the building was kinda like a tent or used some sort of grass as roof

    Things that decay.

    Maybe it was a ceremonial temple city.
    As far as I know, Andeans had a thing for building these huge city-sized ceremonial sites as temples first and cities second.

    It's just a city, it's in the historical record too. The Chimu aren't unknown. It looks like a bunch of walls because they probably had thatch roofs. Same with Wari and Inca and most Andean structures - roofs are gone now

    That area is very dry too, so it's well preserved

      Are there any temples or anything? Any special structures?

      Any remnants at all of the people who used to live there?! The place looks totally empty.

    it's the ancestor of one of those youtube channels where kids make large structures out of mud over the course of a week until they have a dining table and porch
