▪︎ Sarcófagos de Karajía

los chachapoyas tenían muchas cosas en común con sus enemigos los incas y una de ellas era la necesidad de conservar los cuerpos de sus difuntos de la mejor manera posible, porque así lo ordenaban sus ritos y creencias. Pero en la región donde vivían no existían las secas arenas de los costeños ni las secas y frías punas de los serranos para momificar sus cuerpos. Vivían en una zona con un régimen de lluvias abrumador que destruía la materia orgánica mu**ta muy rápidamente. Por eso buscaban las oquedades existentes en grandes paredes de piedra natural y construían allí sus mausoleos de piedra o sarcofagos. Así la pared de roca, ofrecía un techo natural contra la lluvia y, dado que no crecían plantas en ellas, se mantenían secas. Las momias que iban dentro de las tumbas estaban colocadas sobre una tarima de madera que las separaba del eventual suelo mojado. Y la ubicación de toda la estructura se decidía tomando en cuenta las corrientes de aire, para que el lugar esté siempre ventilado y refrescado. Construían así pequeños microclimas, poco húmedos y algo más fríos que el entorno.

▪︎ Chaski

El sistema de mensajería de relevo fue uno de los sistemas más eficientes implementados por los incas,
el chaski o mensajero corredor fue el elemento humano utilizado para este propósito, reclutado entre los jóvenes más rápidos y atléticos que no pasaban de los 20 años de edad, Fueron colocados en puestos de relevo distribuidos a lo largo del gran camino inca "QAPACÑAN", muchos cronistas españoles escribieron sobre las grandes hazañas de rapidez y eficiencia con las que se transmitían los mensajes, se dice que un mensaje podía recorrer 1200 km en solo 6 días, los chaskis no solo llevaba mensajes sino que también podía llevar una carga de aproximadamente 15 kg consistente en unos alimentos exóticos que según las crónicas llegaban frescos a la mano del Sapa Inca.

Temple of the Inscriptions after its discovery, at the Maya city of Palenque, Mexico, 1890.

📎 The Temple of the Inscriptions ("House of the Nine Sharpened Spears") is the largest Mesoamerican stepped pyramid structure at the pre-Columbian Maya civilization site of Palenque, located in the modern-day state of Chiapas, Mexico. The structure was specifically built as the funerary monument for the ruler of Palenque in the 7th century, whose reign over the polity lasted almost 70 years.

The Temple of the Inscriptions has been significant in the study of the ancient Maya, owing to the extraordinary sample of hieroglyphic text found on the Inscription Tablets, the impressive sculptural panels on the piers of the building, and the finds inside the tomb of Pakal.

Around the world, hundreds of thousands of lost ancient sites lie buried and hidden from view. Satellite archaeologist Sarah Parcak is determined to find them before looters do. With the 2016 TED Prize, Parcak is building an online citizen-science tool called GlobalXplorer that will train an army of volunteer explorers to find and protect the world's hidden heritage. In this talk, she offers a preview of the first place they'll look: Peru -- the home of Machu Picchu, the Nazca lines and other archaeological wonders waiting to be discovered. This talk was presented at an official TED conference, https://www.ted.com/talks/sarah_parcak_hunting_for_peru_s_lost_civilizations_with_satellites
Our human story is being lost. With your help, GlobalXplorer° will strive to discover and protect our shared human story. Using satellite imagery, we can fight the loss of our cultural heritage.
