Description

Arthur Posnansky's final and most important book was regarding the ancient site of Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco) in modern Bolivia.

In this monumental work Posnansky argued that Tiwanaku was constructed approximately 15,000 BC by American peoples, although not by the ancestors of those then living in the area, the Aymara. Posnansky also saw Tiwanaku as the origin point of civilization throughout the Americas, including the Inca, the Maya and others.

Illustrated with photographs, detailed descriptions of structures and inscriptions, and meticulously prepared maps.

Published in 1945 (volumes I and II) and 1957 (volumes III and IV)

Translated into English by James F. Sheaver
