'Ancient lost city discovered in the Amazonian rain forest...'

'An ancient lost city has been discovered in the remote Amazonian rainforest of north-east Peru, archaeologists have announced.

The fortified citadel appears to be from the pre-Inca era and may be linked to the country's legendary 'Cloud People'.

... The area, about 497 miles northeast of Lima, is famed for its vast, isolated natural beauty, surrounded by verdant foliage and soaring waterfalls, said Cabrera Bravo.

The citadel likely belonged to the Chachapoyas civilization - an ancient people whose glory days over a thousand years ago pre-date the hegemony of the powerful Incas.'
