A little known Inca site near Chari, Bolivia called Chullpapata at 3984m asl. This is a chullpa tower overlooking the valley.—Alesia Hoyle
The site of Los Guachimontones located in the hills above the town of Teuchitlan in Jalisco, Mexico. It is the location of the largest site of the Teuchitlan Culture (300 BC – 450/500 AD), which I study. The Teuchitlan Culture was one of several cultures in West Mexico during this period that shared in the practice of interring some of their dead in shaft and chamber tombs. The Teuchitlan Culture is unique in their construction of bullseye shaped architecture which is only found in a few places outside of the Tequila Valleys.—Anthony DeLuca
