Are you sure about the link Sandy?  I tried for 5 mins and it would not load.  Any chance you could paste in some salient points?

It's a pdf document, works fine for me though. Loaded in no time. It's an article by Jean-Pierre Protzen, if it helps any, called Who Taught the Inca Stonemasons Their Skills A Comparison of Tiahuanaco and Inca Cut-Stone Masonry.
You might be able to find it somewhere else too.

So god made me an atheist. Who are you to question his wisdom?!

Sorry Zoser. You probably have to have adobe pdf installed.

I liked it for the old photos too. It does explain a few things about the stone masonry while making the Inca Comparison. I'm still thinkin there is  a lot about Puma we don't know. What a fun day it would be to dig aound with a metal dectector..tx guys.

Ok - got the file.  Nice pics, although the Russian archaelology videos on youtube are better IMHO.

Shame that the detailed writing in the report bears no resemblance to the actual architecture!  It explains nothing about how PP was achieved; instead it concentrates on the usual banal issues.

Never mind.

The only thing I've ever seen that has even the vaguest similarity to the stonework at PP is in Ethiopia.

by the way, I am NOT suggesting they are the same, built by the same culture, or are in any way related.

Also note, the above pictures are of work done in granite.
