Discovered in 2010 during the ebb and flow, the figures have reappeared with this year's severe drought in the Amazon. The drought has changed the landscape at the site and the engravings on the rocks are visible. The Ponta da Lages site is located at the meeting of the Negro and Solimões rivers in Manaus. Experts claim that the engravings are 2,000 years old and that ancient peoples made tools at the site. After being submerged for 13 years, the figures, now exposed to the sun, are at risk of degradation due to the temperature. Whenever there is an ebb and flow in the region, archaeologists return to assess the site.
