9780300136456: Machu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas

Situated high in the Peruvian Andes, the fifteenth-century Inca palace complex at Machu Picchu is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the world. In this beautifully illustrated book, leading American and Peruvian scholars provide an unprecedented overview of the site, its place within the Inca empire, the mysteries surrounding its establishment and abandonment, and the discoveries made there since the excavations by archaeologist Hiram Bingham III in the early twentieth century.

Drawing upon the most recent scientific findings, the authors vividly describe the royal estate in the cloud forest where the Inca emperor and his guests went to escape the pressures of the capital. In addition to Bingham’s exciting account of his first expedition in 1911, the book includes new and archival photographs of the site as well as color illustrations and explanations of some 120 gold, silver, ceramic, bone, and textile works recovered at Machu Picchu.

From the Publisher:

This book is the catalogue of an exhibition that opened at Yale University's Peabody Museum of Natural History. It will travel to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science from February 13 to May 9, 2004; the Houston Museum of Natural Science from June 4 to August 29, 2004; and the Field Museum of Chicago from October 8 to February 1, 2005, before returning to the Peabody Museum as a permanent exhibit.

From the Back Cover:

"Despite its importance as a site of world heritage status, there has been virtually nothing substantive available on Machu Picchu. This appealing book, written by the preeminent scholars in the field, fills the gap beautifully."-Jeffrey Quilter, director of pre-Columbian studies, Dumbarton Oaks
