Arthur Posnansky, followed by Kurt Bilau have proposed a date of circa BC as the date of fall of Tiwanaku. There are also reports of pre-Incan structures.

Since these ruins were already debris in the period of the Inca Empire, capricious commentaries and conjectures were made about their existence and the men who built them, and especially about their age.

It has been proven, by the studies and conclusions of celebrated authorities in modern geology and geography, especially by the monumental works of Professor Albrecht Penckformer Director and Founder of the Oceanographic Institute of Berlin, that the continental ices of Europe exerted an enormous pressure on those lands, over which they lay. In that period, consequently, these ruins were some 34 m. It was necessary and it is logical to suppose that there would be a period of transition between the two forms of dwelling and this is seen in the completely subterranean dwelling that we have in Tihuanacu.

After conducting studies of naval engineering, at the end of the Decade ofduring the rush of the rubber, he worked at a river transport company, for which he made numerous expeditions and explorations by the Amazon of Bolivia and Brazil. There are also reports of pre-Incan structures submerged in Titicaca d. Studies of this sort have been carried out on the monuments of Egypt, Asia, Europe and England.

In the light of the foregoing, we shall begin at once the application of astronomical science to the discovery of the approximate age of Tihuanacuby means of the calculation of the age of the Temple of the Sun of Kalasasaya. To the south of the lake are remarkable archaeological remains of Tiwanaku and the equally exciting Puma Punku. He used his expertise to become the director of a river navigation company, which was called La Empresa de Navegacao dos rios Purus e Acre.

Jim Allen has included an extensive article on the life and research of Posnansky, including excerpts from his work a. During the Posnahsky Reich Posnansky wrote about racial science that supported Nordicism, which underpinned a lot of Nazi ideology. Little by little, or rather, century by century, the northern part of the present Altiplano and mountain ranges rose as a result of the cessation of the aforementioned weight of the ice, and it was then that there was produced an initial inclination which drained the posnannsky great glacial lake.

Fig 30 Since we have exhausted the subject of the astronomical angles of the Second Period of Tihuanacu, it is necessary to consider the angles of the construction which is within the Kalasasaya of the Third Period.

He was born in a family of Polish origin. It is not a new thing to study the age of archaeological monuments by astronomical means. But artuto is the case only at the present time, because the terraces of the artificial hill of Akapana which formerly were supported by retaining walls, are crumbled.

A May report r confirmed that the Tiwanaku complex is much more extensive than previously thought, covering an area of at least hectares 1, acres.

This place, then, is the most elevated one in the interior of the temple and without doubt designates the most important place of the “sanctum sanctorum”.

This assertion is proven by the many hydraulic works, such as wharves, canals, and especially the spillway by which the step-formed canal was drained.

Published March 27, Rafael Videla Eissmann is an historian at the Catholic University of Chile, has written a number of articles in Spanish a regarding Kiss, as well as a wide range of other historical subjects.

It is evident beyond a doubt that the inhabitants of Tihuanacu knew animals now extinct, which they reproduced faithfully by stylizing them on their ceramics and other plastic works. Lovecraft published a short novel inAt the Mountains of Madness [ ]which also used an Antarctic — Atlantis link.

Posnansky, Arthur 1873-1946

The Antarctic theory is dependent on the acceptance of a number of hotly debated fundamentals, among which are: We consider this matter in greater detail in another of our works. A further expedition was planned, but never materialised because of the start of World War II. The astronomical angles are, with some slight difference, almost the same as those of the Kalasasaya of the Second Period.

The most important thing in this little shrine, which we have decided to call “sanctum sanctorum”, is, in the first place, a block of trachyte which now is split, located in the most prominent part of the place and which until now we have called “observation block”, fig 26 Fig Because of his loyalty to and support of Bolivia in this conflict, he lost all of his properties in Brazil.

This being the case, the part which is today the section of Oruro would have been under a layer of water of some m. Fig 11 Many pages could be written to enumerate the destructive effects of erosion on the blocks of Tihuanacu which, notwithstanding the quality of the material of which they were composed, and the period during which they were protected from the exterior elements, suffered the effects of time in an intense fashion.

Erosion is quite evident in the ruins of Puma-Punkuso-called today, but which posnaneky our opinion constituted in that epoch the Temple of the Moon.
