The Last Expedition
On 29 April 1925 Fawcett was still in contact with his wife through the telegraph, he said he would enter a closed area in the Amazon jungle of civilization, it will cross the upper Xingu river in the southeastern Amazon tributary. And since it is no longer heard news of them. Matto Grosso is the name of the region around the river Xingu, where they disappeared.
Many thought that they were killed by the local Indians, Tribe Kalapalos one of the last three indian tribes met they said that they looked like being sick. There is no evidence to corroborate the killing by Indian tribes to the host region. Because Indian tribes in the region of Matto Grosso friendly enough, except Indians eastward.
In 1927 the name plate belonging Fawcett found on one other Indian tribes, but the plate was apparently given directly by the Fawcett expedition to the head of the tribe in the previous 5 years. And in June 1933, Colonel Aniceto Botelho found a compass belonging Fawcett in the Mato Grosso region surrounding residential Bacairy Indian Tribes.
And the results of the investigation said that the journey into the wilds of the Amazon began after it was left in the settlement compass Bacairy. It could be that he stopped dipemukiman, expressed intention to enter the forest and were hosted by the tribe and the compass was forgotten Bacairy carrying.
Meeting with Other Browsers
In a book I read (The Fate of Colonel Fawcett), there are two other explorers who met Fawcett in the interior of the Amazon, Fawcett is said to live for five years with the Indians. It collects various kinds of stones with a younger man and another slightly older. Tom Roch first adventurer who discovered them in 1931 in the region of Matto Grosso. And one was Miguel Trucchi. To Miguel, Fawcett said he had a special reason to stay and live with the Indians inland, but their location is not in the Matto Grosso met in Rio das Mortes but.
And in July 1933, An Apostolic Administrator in the Matto Grosso named Monseigneur Couturon send a note when it travels through the river Kuluene that it mentions that they met three people who fit the team's hallmark characteristics Fawcett in 1932, are reported Fawcett was written live and settle Aruvudu with Indians. Jack Fawcett junior had married Indian women and had a boy.
But in 2005 another story appeared, a writer from The New Yorker, David Grann visited the Indian tribes Kalapalos and get the story by word of mouth that, Fawcett and his team settled with them for a while and move on to the east.
Spare Kalapalos also warned them not to enter the civilization they are looking directed toward the east, because the area is guarded by Indian tribes who likes to attack. Five days sepeninggalan Fawcett eastward bumbungan seen smoke rising from their camp. All that was witnessed by the tribe Kalapalos. The full story on the search trail Fawcett wrote the book The Lost City of Z.
Kuhikugu Civilization and The Lost City of Z
Well, we started the search. Kuhiguku is a relic of the past site of an Indian civilization in the Amazon rain forest, located in the southeast of the upstream river Xingu, Brazil. What is unique with this site is that almost all of the write by Portuguese explorers in the Manuscript 512 similar to this website.
512 manuscripts recount the great gate to the city surrounded the houses and no temple in it, the mysterious city without residents having magnificent plaza, fountain pools and extensive sightseeing.
Anyone would be amazed amazed if you see the shape of a magnificent city that has never been seen at all.
Well what Kuhiguku site? Site was first discovered by Michael Heckenberger with local tribes Kuikuro which is a descendant of the tribe Kuhikugu. The site is located in the upper Xingu river, has twenty-eight towns and villages in an area of 7700 square kilometers that is able to accommodate 50,000 inhabitants. Estimated civilization since 1500 years ago settled back around 400 years ago.
Many defense ditches fences were built around the settlement, has several circular plaza measuring 150 m in some cities. Cities and settlements Kuhikugu are connected by wide roads, rivers are regulated side of the highway with pedestrian bridges that can be crossed by canoe canoes underneath. People live by farming, they also built dams and fish ponds. And the tradition of raising fish is still continued by the tribe Kuikuro inherited tribal tradition of their predecessors, civilization Kuhikugu.
Civilization started in the early inhabitants abandoned 16th century, when it was European explorers came and settled in their settlements with the plague. Nearly two-thirds of the population died from the outbreak, and the city was engulfed by lush Amazon jungle, until it was rediscovered by Portuguese explorers in 1743 and was named City of Z by Percy Harrison Fawcett.
Well if you can compare the picture of the mysterious city of Manuscript 512 Kuhikugu with the location of the same civilization? Xingu headwaters region of Matto Grosso is, has much in common with the Portuguese explorers encountered the city in 1743.
