TIWANAKU, LA PAZ, BOLIVIA (MAY 10, 2017) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF SUN DOOR AND DETAILS ON SUN DOOR AT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE ARCHAEOLOGIST AND UNESCO CONSULTER, JOSE IGNACIO GALLEGOS WALKING AT SITE (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) ARCHAEOLOGIST AND UNESCO CONSULTER, JOSE IGNACIO GALLEGOS, SAYING: "We have put together a series of investigations which have been carried out over a period of years and which covers the entire area of Tiwanaku, providing us information about housing, channels, public spaces, political and religious spaces. But what was missing was a fixed image of the whole site and to see how that information could be translated to the places where the people lived or the places where the people performed their rituals and that type of thing. And that's what we were able to do. We were able to get a fixed image of Tiwanaku with all of this information." VARIOUS OF KALASASAYA TEMPLE AND PEOPLE TOURING THE SITE VARIOUS OF UNDERGROUND TEMPLE AND ANTHROPOMORPHIC IMAGES (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) ARCHAEOLOGIST AND UNESCO CONSULTER, JOSE IGNACIO GALLEGOS, SAYING: "From the satellite information that the drone provided we are talking about a site, within the walls, that covers 650 hectares (1,600 acres), it's huge, enormous. I can't really say, but it's about 2 to 3 percent (of the site) that the public can visit."

So far, the investigations and excavations have been carried out by national and international experts, each of whom have their own components and their own objectives. However, it's also been good, I think. I've had doubts on some, but the hypotheses have also allowed us to get closer to the archaeological data. However, with the new data that we have, thanks to UNESCO, which are in preliminary analysis, practically changes the way we see Tiwakanu."
