The Inka Empire Revealed

0 Love It
Save it

It's been a century since amateur archaeologist Hiram Bingham stumbled upon the lost mountaintop city of Machu Picchu in Peru, that now world-famous remnant of the pre-Columbian Inca Empire. To commemorate the centenary of this 'discovery' (their quotation marks, not ours), the National Museum of Nature and Science is hosting an exhibition of Inca artifacts, which are presented in the context of archaeology, anthropology and history.
