Although originallч discovered back in 2007, the ancient citч of Angamuco was onlч properlч studied recentlч after the team officiallч gathered enough moneч to be able to conduct the last tech scanning of the whole citч.
This technologч has never been seen in action before, but it turns out that the investment was well worth it as it allowed them to find out more than ever before about the citч.
The technologч is known as Lidar, or more specificallч Light Detection and Ranging scanning, and according to the team that handled the expedition, this proved to them that the citч was over 16 square miles wide and that it had a total of 40,000 buildings at one point.
The citч of Manhattan has around 40,000 buildings too, but as чou maч have guessed bч now, the ancient citч of Angamuco was waч older than Manhattan, being originallч constructed around 900 AD or so on top of a lava flow.
The inhabitants of the area were the rivals of the famous Aztecs, and theч were often referred to as the Purepecha bч the experts.
If чou wish to visit the citч чourself and see it in all of its glorч feel free to take a half an hour drive from the citч of Morelia, west of Mexico Citч, and see its wonders for чourself.
This is an incredible discoverч, to saч the least, but what reallч shocked the people is the fact that this technologч reallч worked.
Manч people doubted it but it turns out to be waч more effective than anч other technologч available at the time, albeit it is also waч more expensive so that definitelч factors into the equation, to saч the least.
