Ica Stone"Beginning in the 1930s, the father of Dr. Javier Cabrera, Cultural Anthropologist for Ica, Peru, discovered many hundreds of ceremonial burial stones in the tombs of the ancient Incas. Dr. Cabrera, carrying on his father's work, has collected more than 1,100 of these andesite stones, which are estimated to be between 500 and 1,500 years old and have become known collectively as the Ica Stones. The stones bear etchings, many of which are sexually graphic (which was common to the culture), some picture idols and others depict such practices as open-heart surgery and brain transplants. The most astonishing etchings, however, clearly represent dinosaurs - brontosaurs, triceratops (see photo), stegosaurus and pterosaurs. While skeptics consider the Ica Stones a hoax, their authenticity has neither been proved or disproved."[1]


Note from the webmaster: There has been much debate over the validity of the Inca stones. After the inital news on them, the Peruvian government arrested the farmer [Basilio Uschuya] who provided them to Dr. Cabrera, under some national antiquities law. Not surprisingly, he recanted his claim of finding them and stated he had made them. After being released, he recanted yet again, claiming he just wanted out of jail. This happened yet again, with him telling author Eric von Danicken they were a fraud, but then telling a German newspaper he had lied. His (obvious) honesty issues aside, it is highly unlikely that a poor farmer and his wife would have the time, resources, and knowledge of medical procedures to create the over 20,000 stones that were eventually found. Further, people have been finding these engraved stones in the region for years, even before the farmer's birth. They were first seen and recorded by Jesuit missionary Father Simon, who accompanied Pizarro in 1525. Samples were shipped to Spain in 1562. In my opinion, given that these stones were discovered almost 500 years ago, they are probably legitimate OOP artifacts. However, you will need to make the decision for yourself.
