Caral The Oldest Civilization in America


Caral, located 182kms., north of Lima is an ancient site approximately 5000 years old. This, scientifically proven fact has given Caral, the title of The Oldest Civilization in America, as well as The Sacred City, since there were many fireplaces found in different sections excavated. According to archeologists, food and other objects were burned as offerings which indicates the first examples of using religion as a confirmation of the new state and central government.
