David Grann has an update on the latest findings, which point to the existence of a “vast and complex ancient civilization,” in the New Yorker’s News Desk blog. He writes: “The latest discovery proves that we are only at the outset of this archeological revolution—one that is exploding our perceptions about what the Amazon and the Americas looked like before the arrival of Christopher Columbus.”

Grann’s “The Lost City of Z” recently made our list of the best travel books of 2009.
