Lost marvels revealed: Ancient Amazonian cities reshape history with lidar discovery

Archaeologists make groundbreaking discovery in Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest, unveiling a hidden ancient city dating back to the Greco-Persian Wars. Thanks to LiDAR technology, researchers identified 6,000 earthen platforms spanning 100 square miles, revealing a sophisticated society connected by wide, straight roads.

This challenges previous beliefs about the Amazon’s historical significance, showcasing a thriving civilization 2,500 years ago with remarkable agricultural and engineering achievements. The findings mark a paradigm shift, emphasizing the need for inclusive science in reevaluating the underestimated cultural richness of the Amazonian world. LiDAR continues to unveil ancient wonders across the globe.
