      Ancient Calendar Unearthed in Peru
      By Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News

      June 2, 2006— 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.

      There have been European versions too.

      “Early solstice markers are known in Ireland with dates earlier than Buena Vista, but not, to my knowledge, with multiple instruments,” said Robert Benfer, who oversaw the project and is a professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
