Synopsis

This title describes the site that is voted one of the new seven wonders of the world in 2007. A hundred years ago in July 1911, Hiram Bingham discovered, or more correctly, came across, the iconic 'lost city of the Incas' in the Peruvian Andes - now threatened both by tourism and by the climate. Published for the centenary, "Machu Picchu" tells the story of this astonishing site, and examines how interpretations of the site have been transformed over the last twenty years. Using the evidence of early Spanish documents, new archaeology and, significantly, looking at material controversially removed from Peru by Bingham, this book breaks exciting new ground on this immense subject.
