New evidence for the date of the Nazca lines

Helaine Silverman, David Browne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

A study of associations now defines with good confidence the dates of the surface arrangements of stones and of cleared areas that make up some of the celebrated Nazca lines, Peru.
