The Wari Ruins are located near Quinua, in the Huanta Province, Ayacucho Region, Peru at an altitude 2770 m above sea level. These ruins are all that is left of Wari, the capital city of the Wari (hispanicized Huari). This capital city covers some 16 square kilometers, and the architecture is aligned to conform to the local topography.
The ruins appear to be in almost the same condition as they were during the days of the powerful Wari empire, from about CE 500 to 900. There are signs that most of the buildings were coated with a layer of white plaster, which must have been a stunning sight in those days. As we can see in the above photo, they mainly worked with broken stone and mortar, so what about the massive shaped slabs???
And loosely organized in the area are these well shaped hard andesite stones, some with grooves, and others circular holes…did the bronze age Wari people do this work, or another culture?
The stones above are intact examples of possibly hundreds of well shaped “conduits” found at Wari. Local officials have no comment when questioned how they were made, what they were for, and who made them…
And the above slabs, of hard volcanic stone making up what appears to be a tomb appear to have been either recycled from an earlier work, or shows an astonishing level of craftsmanship made with soft bronze tools…
In the above photo, you can see that I am inside one of the “boxes” at Wari, and that it definitely looks reconstructed, as the surfaces are far superior to the joints. It is likely here, as in Cusco and other places, that an earlier culture occupied the site, and then the Wari people later moved in and recycled what was there.
And these curious elongated skulls were found in the area of Wari. They are assumed to be from that culture, but have not been radiocarbon or DNA tested, so that is simply an assumption.
We have 2 tours remaining for 2014 that explore the megalithic remains and elongated skulls of Peru and Bolivia; tours which no one else provides:
