Ancient Calendar Unearthed in Peru





Archaeologists have discovered an enormous prehistoric calendar, formed by sculptures arranged in a circle, at the Temple of the Fox in Buena Vista, Peru.

The calendar, which dates to 2200 B.C., is the oldest known structure of its kind found in the Americas.

Similar monuments erected by the Mayans of Mexico have also been found, but those have dated to approximately 2,000 years ago.
