So, they\’re finding more remnants of this extensive and long lasting Amazonian civilisation:
The discoveries have demolished ideas that soils in the upper Amazon were too poor to support extensive agriculture, says Denise Schaan, a co-author of the study and anthropologist at the Federal University of Pará, in Belém, Brazil. She told National Geographic: \”We found this picture is wrong. And there is a lot more to discover in these places, it\’s never-ending. Every week we find new structures.\”
It also rather demolishes the idea that the Amazon rain forest does not and cannot regenerate itself.
