This place is at the top of many travelers ' lists. An impressive "the lost city" Machu Picchu in Cusco was found in 1911 year and is one of the most famous settlements, created by the Empire of the Incas.

В 15-м веке инки совершили замечательный строительный подвигна плоской вершине 2430 метровой горы были размещены 140 построек, включая храмы и дома. Город был разделен на области для королевской семьи и для низших классов.

Потрясающая архитектураэто самая загадочная часть Мачу-Пикчу. Как они могли управлять огромной империей в изолированной области Перу без создания каких-либо рынков является довольно загадочным фактом, и резко отличается от большинства других старых городов, где рыночные площади были ключевыми. Почему же у них не было характерной для всего остального мира экономики, и как они процветали без неё?


Кахокия, USA


It is believed, that of 10000 to 40000 Cahokia people called their home for hundreds of years.

Excavation and wooden structures were surrounded by a huge pyramids, considered, that civilization here was at its height between 600-1400 years BC.

Residents of Cahokia built huge markets, and engaged in agricultural work difficult. More 120 mounds were built here. Scientists still have not been able to find out, why the city was abandoned in the 1200s years, possible depletion of resources and sickness, played a fatal role.
