The Ica stones are a collection of andesite stones found in Ica Province, Peru that bear a variety of diagrams.
Some of them supposedly have depictions of dinosaurs, and what is alleged to be advanced technology.
This is one of researcher and writer Brien Foerster’s regular column here at
Brien’s study and insight into the Inca’s ancient origins shed a new light on that famous South American culture.
The implications are both startling and far reaching suggesting a connection to a pan Pacific civilization reaching back to mankind’s most distant past.
From the 1960s Javier Cabrera Darquea collected and popularized the stones, obtaining many of them from a farmer named Basilio Uschuya.
The images vary from simple pictures on one side of a pebble, up to designs of great complexity.
Some of the designs are in styles which can be recognized as belonging to the Paracas, Nazca, Tiwanaku, or Inca cultures.
