The Bolivian Altiplano, for example, the prehistoric seat of the greatest culture of the Americas, which, as we shall prove farther on, did not have the great height above sea level that it has today, did not because of its proximity to the equator, undergo a glacial period as long as that in the territories of present-day Argentina.

Later in that decade he made his first visit to Tiahuanaco.

These monuments were under the surface of the waters some four hundred years ago, when Spanish feet first trod the Altiplano. We repeat once again that the calculations with regard to the age of Tihuanacu are based solely and exclusively on the difference in the obliquity of the ecliptic of the period in which that great temple was built and that which it has today.

During this time, Posnansky introduced the first car to Bolivia. It has now lost its meaning owing to the present cultural state of native population.

But it did not happen thus; no memory has remained of that epoch; already at the time of the Conquest, the Indians, when asked regarding the age of Tihuanacu, replied that those monuments had always been there or that they had appeared on the dawn of a very remote day or that they were constructed by a race of giants, called “Huaris”, before Chamak-pacha. The controversial c Fuente Magna bowl is also offered as evidence of this idea.


This difference has served as the basis for the calculation of the age of Tihuanacu. At the present time this spillway is found under the plain, crossing the south retaining wall of Akapana.

With regard to posnaneky first, or prehistoric, period of Tihuanacu, as we have decided to call it, this is much more remote and we do not have, because of the present state of science, any basis for establishing astronomical calculations; rather, we can use only a geological basis for the determination of the period in which it was built, a method which does not make it possible to express its age in figures, but only to lay down a hypothetical affirmation of a geological epoch and this also only within the limitations inherent to the present state of our knowledge in this field.

Sadly, Tiwanaku, much like the Giza Pyramidsthe Sphinx and Easter Islandhas attracted its own share of woo and pseudoarchaeological nonsense.

The fauna and flora changed radically from the epoch of splendor to our time. Both sites have produced some extreme theories regarding the builders of these monuments, their technology level and the date of their construction.

He is best known for his work at Tiahuanaco Tiwanaku in the Bolivian Andes. The Approach to Kalasasaya. During the Third Reich Artjur wrote about racial science that supported Nordicism, which underpinned a lot of Nazi ideology.

His attention was drawn even further south to Antarctica where he controversially concluded that man had originated rather than Africa.
