Yamagata University has announced the discovery of 143 geoglyphs on the Nazca Pampa and surrounding areas in Peru, including one found in a study using artificial intelligence technology.

The university’s team, led by professor Masato Sakai, found 142 geoglyphs, including representations of humans, snakes and birds, through analysis of high-resolution images of the areas and fieldwork there between 2016 and 2018. The geoglyphs found are believed to have been created between 100 B.C. and 300 A.D.
