Pyramids Ecuador - Cochasquí / unedited [00:28]
Pyramids in Ecuador - open to public. The entire compound was - until recently - owned by a single family. It is currently under the care of the government of Ecuador and open to the public. The "main" or "most central" structure was dug up (in a most unprofessional way / utterly destroyed) before the family gave the property over to the government of Ecuador. When asked if they found anything the family member in question became nervous and skirted the question. Laughing we can openly discuss the gold they must have unearthed. Officially no gold was found. Nonetheless artifacts did/do? abound in and around this site. On a personal note, highly relevant archaeological sites abound everywhere we have dug in Ecuador. "Grave?" sites along the coast near Bahia have been approximately 30 meters deep. Other pyramids look like those featured in these videos - earthen mounts or hills, covered in vegetation.
