Insatiable curiousity and the drive to solve ancient architectural mysteries has led this intrepid explorer on numerous adventures in the South American Andes mountain jungles, the shores of Easter Island, and the arid climes of the Middle East. Vince's websites offer detailed information about his current offering of books and papers recounting 30 years of exploration and study in Inca architecture and amazing megalithic construction.
An ongoing collection of books and monographs by architect, author and editor, Vincent R. Lee. Following decades of drawing maps and house plans and climbing hundreds of summits as a part-time alpine mountain guide, in 1982 Vince embarked on yet another alternate career, in archaeological exploration, leading to numerous excursions into the ancient lands of the Incas in South America. Sixpac Manco Publications is a repository of Inca, Chachapoya & Andean archaeological studies and explorations into pre-Columbian architectural design.
Megalithic mysteries around the world have long fascinated architect, author and editor, Vincent R. Lee. Building with gigantic blocks of stone was one of ancient mankind's earliest passions, so early in fact that their methods are now largely lost to us. Vince's megalithic studies of these enormous architectural feats has helped him develop a theory and discover ample supporting evidence of our ancestors' simple but ingenious methods of creating these marvels of construction.
The Trail of the Ancients Scenic Byway traverses a portion of the American Southwest that, once experienced, cannot easily be forgotten. Visitors return home with memories of sandstone landscapes carved by wind and water into shapes of every kind, and it is common for those who have traveled through the Four Corners area to return many times. Most compelling is the long occupation by native human communities, present over a time spectrum rarely intact elsewhere. Along the Trail of the Ancients century-old traditions are still honored, and new practices and art forms are constantly evolving.
