Band of Holes
|Some or all of this article's listed sources may not be reliable. (February 2014)|
Band of Holes is the name given to a series of thousands of uniform holes found in the Pisco Valley on the Nazca Plateau in Peru. The holes themselves lie between and extending for several miles in a basically North-South orientation over uneven mountain surfaces. The highly organized grouping of holes range in size from a yard (a meter) to as much as 20 to 30 feet (6.1 to 9.1 m) in diameter and vary in depth from a few inches to 6 to 7 feet (1.8 to 2.1 m). The holes are on the same plateau as the Nazca Lines but exhibit a different construction style.
Some sections have holes in rigid and perfect precision; some run in rows that curve up in arches, some staggered lines.
The holes were a subject of discussion on the Ancient Aliens episode "The Mission" (S1E3, 2010), along with the Nazca lines.
