Hi ha moltes teories sobre com es van construir els monòlits de l'Stonehenge americà a Bolívia. L'expedició de l'investigador de la Universitat de Pennsilvània Alexei Vranich intenta provar que les pedres es van transportar a través del llac Titicaca sobre barques fetes amb canyes i després es van arrossegar per cobrir la distància de 10 quilòmetres fins a la ciutat.

In the magnificently stark landscape of the Bolivian highlands lies Tiwanaku, a two thousand-year-old city that was home to one of the most influential civilizations in pre-Inca South America. Scattered throughout this remarkable metropolis are huge temples, pyramids, and delicately carved monoliths constructed from colossal slabs of stone. But Tiwanaku’s beauty comes with an equally beguiling mystery. The nearest quarry that could have produced the city’s rocks lies some 40 kilometers on the other side of Lake Titicaca. This programme chronicles University of Pennsylvania researcher, Alexei Vranich's expedition to prove his theory of how the American Stonehenge was created.

In the barren landscape of the Bolivian highlands, 13,000 feet above sea level, the 2000-year old city of Tiwanaku is a contradictory sight. Home to a sophiscated, pre-Incan civilisation, this remarkable city of temples, and monoliths has been carved from huge stones. How that city came to be built, some 40 km from Lake Titicaca, is now the question that preoccupies two American archaeologists, who decide to test their theories using only the technology that was available to the city’s founders.
