A new study has found that the Inca builders used the same construction techniques as the megalithic engineers of Peru. This suggests that they learned from them, rewriting history books and changing our understanding of how these ancient cultures developed.

The Pachacamac site is a large temple complex in Peru that was later converted into a settlement and then a city, which the Incan empire conquered in 1465 CE. The study found that many of the same construction techniques used by the megalithic engineers were employed at Pachacamac, such as interlocking stones without mortar and stone facing on vertical plinths. The study concluded that this suggests the megalithic engineers predated the Incans and that they learned from them or shared their techniques in conquering Pachacamac:

“The presence of earlier constructive traditions at Pachacamac can be readily seen in the form of large ashlar blocks, which are squared and finished in-situ in earlier Pachacamac structures. These older techniques were employed by the Inca when they expanded into the valley, particularly during the construction of the Hatunrumiyoc royal palace.”

The study further concluded that another factor was likely responsible for Pachacamac being abandoned before the Incan conquest. It concluded that this was likely due to a dramatic climate change event, which caused it to become much more arid and uninhabitable for centuries.

Recently, a new study was published that proposes the megalithic engineers of Peru predated the Inca builders. The study employed radiocarbon dating to compare ceramics found at Pachacamac with nearby Incan sites. It concluded that the most recent samples were older than the Incan sites.

These results determined that there was a gap of between 60-200 years between the abandonment of Pachacamac and its reoccupation by the Incans, meaning it was abandoned for centuries before being occupied by the Incans.

The study further concluded that another factor was likely responsible for Pachacamac being abandoned before the Incan conquest. It concluded that this was likely due to a dramatic climate change event, which caused it to become much more arid and uninhabitable for centuries.

Machu Picchu means “Ancient Mountain.” The shape and style of the ancient megalithic construction is still being studied by archaeologists today.

“The presence of earlier constructive traditions at Pachacamac can be readily seen in the form of large ashlar blocks, which are squared and finished in-situ in earlier Pachacamac structures. These older techniques were employed by the Inca when they expanded into the valley, particularly during the construction of the Hatunrumiyoc royal palace.”

The megalithic trapezoidal door below at Ollantaytambo is a prime example of the stonework skills of megalithic engineers. The door is made from a single piece of stone, which has been finely cut and finished. It is trapezoidal, with a V-shaped notch at the top. The door is around 2 meters high and 1 meter wide.

The door is thought to have been used as an entrance to a temple or palace. It was likely carved out of a single piece of granite using hammers and chisels. The fine craftsmanship and attention to detail is evidence of the high level of skill that the megalithic engineers possessed.

Saqsaywaman is a fortress located north of Cusco, Peru. It is made of and site walls that are up to 3 meters thick and 30 meters high. The fortress was built by the Incas in the 15th century and served as an important military stronghold.

The name Saqsaywaman means “satisfied falcon.” The fortress gets its name from the shape of the hill it is located on, which resembles a falcon in flight.

The walls of the fortress are constructed using a technique known as ashlar masonry. This involves cutting blocks of stone into precise shapes and then assembling them in a dry masonry wall. The blocks are fitted together so closely that not even a knife blade can fit in the joints. In order to build such precisely crafted structures, the megalithic engineers would have needed sophisticated tools and machinery, as well as a thorough understanding of stone-cutting techniques.

This new information could rewrite history books and change our understanding of how these ancient cultures developed. The findings also show us why Saqsaywaman was abandoned before being conquered by Pachacamac in 1438 AD- due to a dramatic climate change event that made it uninhabitable for centuries before this time.
