What geological engineers said who studied the composition and nature of the rocks of Sacsayhuaman: “It is impossible to be a process of nature.” Image
They continue: “The base blocks of the first level were scanned. The rocks are of low density, covered with an artificial shell.” Image
“The blocks are not compact but are agglomerates, showing that the material used was collected in a quarry, later it was ground and used in a mixture to create block molds.” Image
“There are 2 types of block at Sacsayhuaman.
Type A blocks are the lowest, first level, made from a number of blocks that are covered by a shell. They are made this way to receive as much weight as possible” Image
“Type A blocks (many rocks covered by a shell) have a shell made of the man-made mixture. Type B blocks are on top, making up the rest of the wall and are made entirely of the man-made mixture.” Image
“To be sure, Type A (largest lower) blocks were scanned with georadar and their interior is different from their exterior. The interior is not homogenous like their shell is.” Image
So there you have it. A report compiled by Ukrainian Marine Geologist, Russian Engineer, Russian Metallurgical Engineer, Peruvian Archaeologist and Peruvian Geologist.
Work was done December 2012 with approval by the Institute of Geophysics and Tectonics of Russia.
Yet, this report has seemingly disappeared from the public eye and is so hard to find. Thank god for the Internet! Let me know your thoughts! Image
