Real Name: Nazca Lines
Case: Unexplained Artifacts
Details: The Nazca Lines are one of Earth's most fascinating and unsolved archaeological mysteries. Located on the eastern corner of a plateau in Western Peru, enormous patterns of artwork in the form of animals are etched in to the ground for unknown reasons. They were first discovered by the Spanish in the middle of the 16th Century, but they did not reach scientific scrutiny until 1941. Just what the reason for their existence is unknown. Many believe the giant images were create to placate the gods, while others believe the images are evidence of ancient extra-terrestrial contact. Even more astounding is the debate on how these images were created.
