The remains of a long lost civilization have been uncovered by deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.

Some are calling it the real El Dorado in what is turning in to one of the biggest finds for years. Satellite flyovers of deforested regions of the Amazon have revealed an extensive series of trenches and earthworks as well as evidence of several hundred giant structures that are thought to have been built by a civilization of over 60,000 inhabitants.

"Satellite flyovers of newly cleared land in the Amazon have uncovered a vanished civilization that could rival the Incans or Aztecs in sophistication."

This thread "Amazon explorers uncover signs of a real El Dorado ( the city of gold)" should be merged into this one. If a moderator does that though they can please delete this post of mine that only suggests it. Great topic!
