Description of online talk

Since its scientific discovery in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, Machu Picchu has been one of the most enigmatic places in modern archaeology, but even today, there are many mysteries behind the lost city of the Incas. Especially since 2007 when it was included as one of the new seven wonders of the modern world, universities of the world have poured their efforts and studies into different disciplines to understand why, how and what for, the apparently most important Inca city of the second half of the 16th century was built.

What I am going to learn?

In this course we will learn by comparison the early theories developed by Hiram Bingham and Yale University with the new studies conducted in the Inca city of Machu Pichu from 2010 to date.

Who is it for?
