Chankillo: A Virtual Visualization

World Monuments Fund is co-sponsoring a research, sustainable development, and rehabilitation project at Chankillo, a ceremonial center that was built over 2,300 years ago in the Casma Valley, located in the Ancash region of Peru. The following video shows a virtual simulation of the sun’s cyclic movement, registered with great precision in the peaks and valleys of the Thirteen Towers.
