    1- Which discovery in Peru do find amazing? why?
    I find amazing the new Nazca lines because until now it is a mystery what these lines are for, these six lines were spotted in 1939 by someone who flew over them in an airplane otherwise they wouldn’t have been discovered. The enigmatic thing about this discovery is precisely the mystery of who created these lines, what was the objective of each of the images such as the llama, the camel and the unidentified bird, there are several theories around that explain its purpose, but I think there could be new discoveries.
    2- What do you think is challenging about trying to understand the past through archaelogy? From my point of view, it is a challenge, since first of all it is needed a budget to start a research, authorization for its execution. Also, the true challenge of Archaeology as a historical tool is not to describe with more or less precision and these material elements are right, but to achieve, through its analysis, a dynamic, complex and varied world: the social world of people who produced them.
    3- Would you like to assist an archaelogical dig?
    Not really, I leave this work to the experts and people who like to see remains such as bones, ancient fabrics, mummies, etc.
    Do you agree with me?
