Pikimachay ("Flea cave") is an archaeological site in the Ayacucho Valley of Peru. The site has been dated to around 20,000 BCE, however this evidence has been disputed and currently a date of 12,000 BCE seems more likely. Artifacts discovered in the site include basalt tools, chert tools and projectile and fishtail points, along with evidence that humans lived in the area contempraneously with giant sloths and horses.
