Pre-incan ‘Floor of thunder’: ancient dance floor unearthed in Peru reveals booming rituals

In a remarkable archaeological discovery, researchers have unearthed a fascinating pre-Incan dance floor known as the “Floor of Thunder” in Peru. Believed to be around 1,000 CE, this extraordinary platform accommodated up to 26 dancers and produced booming footsteps like thunder, thanks to its specially designed hollow structure and resonant materials.

Situated near a temple dedicated to the Incan god of lightning, the finding suggests that dance played a significant role in ancient Andean rituals. Experts speculate that other excavations may also hold similar thunder dance floors, shedding light on the vibrant traditions of Peru’s rich pre-Incan civilizations.
