Desert labyrinth

 

A paper published in the December 2012 issue of Antiquity describes a previously undocumented geoglyph in the Nazca desert, Peru. This 4.4km-long labyrinth was originally discovered by Clive in 1984, relocated and surveyed 20 years later, and is now interpreted by integrating the scientific data and conclusions drawn from the first-hand experience of walking it.
