It has been researched that the first drawings of Nazca Lines were drawn and created between 2,100 and 1,300 years ago in the Peruvian Desert (Science Daily). Dr. Clive Ruggles has been investigating these lines for five years. These lines were drawn by the Nasca people between the years of 100 BC and AD 700 (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/12/121210101450.htm .

You asked what are Nazca Lines? Nazca Lines are lines that have been drawn in the Peruvian Desert that has a spiritual meaning behind each drawing and creation. Wherever these lines are, no one farms in that area. The nature of the soil itself is made up of clay and gypsum. Humid makes the stones sink deeper. During the day, the sun hardens the surface, leaving stones more securely in the soil. Even hard and strong wind can’t move these stones. Thats why lines are still visible after 2000 years (http://www.awesomstories.com/flicks/indiana-jones/nazca-lines-and-skulls)
