quote [ The first thing to know when walking around Levittown, PA, is that it is very easy to get lost.

Exclusive: Massive Ancient Drawings Found in Peruvian Desert

quote [ Armed with satellites and drones, archaeologists discover new Nasca lines and dozens of other enigmatic geoglyphs carved into the earth.

Unlike the iconic Nasca lines?most of which are only visible from overhead?the older Paracas glyphs were laid down on hillsides, making them visible to villages below. The two cultures also pursued different artistic subjects: Nasca lines most often consist of lines or polygons, but many of the newfound Paracas figures depict humans. ]

New tech = surprising new archaeological discoveries. Drones with high-res cams can see things satellites and airplanes missed.

Ruins of New York?s Great Lost Theme Park

quote [ There is a tiny island off the coast of New York home to a ruined castle. This mysterious ruin known as Starnburg Castle, almost looks as though it should be overlooking the Rive Rhine in Europe, rather than the city of New Rochelle. Whilst you might have discovered Bannerman?s Castle up the Hudson River, this smaller abandoned castle is hardly known about at all. We went to explore this peculiar Germanesque castle, only to discover a little-known, but quite incredible chapter of New York history. ]
