Solar calendars and sun cults were an important part of indigenous American culture, from the Hopi to the Inca sun temple in Cusco, Peru. The latest issue of Science features a new discovery at Chankillo, in the Casma Valley of Peru's coastal desert, pushing sun cults in the region back nearly 2,000 years. A line of structures known as the 13 towers run north-south along the ridge of a low hill at Chankillo, a ceremonial center dating back to the fourth century B.C. From evident observation points on either side, the towers form a "toothed" horizon that spans the annual rising and setting arcs of the sun, indicating their use in solar observations.
