1000 BCE Circular Wall Uncovered in Peru

Archaeologists at Marcaville in the Cusco region have found a seven meter ring shaped wall built by the Marcaville Culture dated at 1000 BCE. It was used as a dwelling and ritual site. They also found another wall. Probably part of a workshop or warehouse. Potttery, figurines, obsidian points, stone and bone beads were in the structures. This culture was a precursor to the Inca Culture.

Andina has the story here with great photos;
