New discoveries in Peru near Nazca Lines

In the news:

Archaeologists using drones have discovered more than 25 geoglyphs in the coastal desert in southern Peru, near the Nazca Lines, south of Lima.

The drawings depict a woman dancing and a killer whale and are believed to have been made by the Paracas culture more than 2,000 years ago. This would date them to hundreds of years before the Nazca people created their famous lines and drawings.
