    Most people know about Nazca Lines however another, less known, unexplained mystery in Peru is located near Pisco Valley on a plain called Cajamarquilla.

These strange holes, stretching for a mile over uneven mountain terrain, were here for so long that the local people have no idea who made them, or why. Funny thing is no one really saw the big picture until the area was seen from the air.

    Very Early Viking Burial. The carefully stacked remains of 33 men were buried in the war boat that brought them from Scandinavia to an Estonian island more than a century before the Vikings are thought to have been able to sail across such distances. The archaeologists believe the men died in a battle some time between 700 and 750, perhaps almost as much as a century before the Viking Age officially began.

The Danish won a decisive victory. Due to the heat, the dead had to be disposed of quickly, and many were buried in their armour. The archaeological excavation of one of the mass graves, in the 1930s, revealed over 1000 skeletons.
