Washington Post Peru May Harbor Americas' First City: "Creamer explained that monumental architecture by its very nature indicates the presence of a large population and a hierarchical division of labor -- many people carry stones, while others supervise. Furthermore, the team found evidence that the people of Caral cultivated cotton and irrigated it with a canal dug from the Supe River. The proliferation of fish bones -- anchovies and sardines, for the most part -- suggests a barter economy with fishermen from the Pacific coast 14 miles away." More great info about this anciet city that no one could believe existed nearly five thousand years ago.
