    For three years, a research team from the British Museum, the University of Reading, Royal Holloway University of London and the Universidad Nacional de San Cristobal de Huamanga set out to discover how the Inca Empire used a stone platform known as an ushnu as a symbol of political power. By enhancing our knowledge of how ushnus were built, their symbolism, what activities took place on them and what artefacts might be found around them, the project has increased our understanding of Inca culture and how they conquered the Andes to become one of the world's most successful civilisations. http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/research_projects/complete_projects/featured_project_inca_ushnus.aspx

Our amazing tour guide, Marco, takes us on a journey to discover secrets of the Incan culture and facts about this World Heritage Site. The history of Machu Picchu was astonishing to learn and sometimes it was almost unbelievable . 2:50 - Due to the location of Machu Picchu the Incan's were masters of agriculture and worshiped the sun for it's life-giving nourishment. The had very little space to grow plants so the designed terraces along the mountain side where different cops were grown on different levels because of temperature change from the bottom to the top. 4:18 - We learn about Hiram Bingham's discoveries and how he found a lot of llama bones and broken ceramics that were thought to be offerings to the sun. They believed the sun was going to leave them and that by making offerings it would return. 5:01 - The famous Machu Picchu sun stone or Intihuatana still has mystery surrounding it today as to it's main purpose. It was likely used as a way to measure the angle and position of the sun as this information would have been used to improve their agriculture abilities. Seeing a ancient city in the clouds like this defines a breathtaking experience. This Wonder of the World is an engineering marvel that stands alone for building in an extremely elevated and remote location.

From new findings at the world famous Nazca lines, to the mysterious Peruvian VAMPIRE, these are 10 UNBELIEVABLE Discoveries in Peru ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. Vilcabamba, Peru The site of Vilcabamba was founded by the Incas in 1539 and was the last refuge for the Incas until it eventually fell to the invading Spanish Conquistadors in 1572. For a long time, it was fabled as a lost city after it was destroyed. It’s quite the journey to get there so it isn’t exactly on the list of tourist attractions. The Spanish must have had a hard time trying to find it. Anyone with royal blood, men and women, made the journey in order to live in peace. In modern times, the city was eventually rediscovered again in 1892. More explorations here were made in the 1960’s, publishing books on the last and lost city of the Incas. The stone cut marks are made with the same extreme precision as the one in Machu Picchu and were made from Bronze chisels. 4. Wari Tomb Archaeologists came across an unbelievable discovery in Peru when they found tomb that had been undisturbed for centuries! Within lies the remains of two bodies from the Wari people. One was an adult and the other was a child. Could it be, they were victims of human sacrifice like other civilizations in the Americas? Archaeologists believe yes and that the child was killed and placed next to an adult. The tomb is over 1000 years old and the bodies were wrapped in ceremonial fabric. 10 other artifacts were found and they believe that the adult was most likely a master weaver. They believe the child was killed and was buried as an offering to the adult, and not to the gods. 3. Temple of the Dead Archaeologists came across an unlooted Wari necropolis in Peru that you see in this photo, full of silver and gold artifacts. The modern day tomb raiders found rare pieces of history dating back from 700-1000 AD, containing the remains of 3 Wari queens and the remains of 60 other people, some which were human sacrifices and som e were actually well preserved. This skeleton here with the cracked skull was believed to be what’s left of a sacrificed human. Archaeologists are scrambling to piece together the bones, like you see here.The Wari tomb is the first of its kind uncovered and it really makes us wonder what else this pre Inca civilization was capable of. You have to wonder why we don’t hear more about these people in the history books. Here in this photo we see some of the golden ear ornaments worn by possibly an ancient queen. This here is a ceramic flask of a Warlord with his eye open displaying his wide body. This goes to show that woman held much more power in this tribe than previously thought. 2. Peruvian Vampires Archaeologists came across a grizzly ancient discovery and learned more about sacrificial methods of natives in this culture. Six bodies of women were sacrificed in a ritualistic tradition in a secret chamber of this temple. The ceremonies involved creepy costumes, beheading and drinking of their blood. The bodies were then faced towards the Andes mountains that were considered sacred. These were believed to be from the Lambayeque culture, also known as the Sican culture, found along the north coast of peru from 750 AD to 1375. Religious cities of this culture huge temples were constructed with secret sacrificial chambers. Some of the artifacts collected here included ceramic figures that you see in these photos. Other skeletons like this one were found, shielding its eyes, possibly from the horrific ceremony taking place. 1. The Nazca Holes You may have heard of the Nazca Lines, but have you heard about the mysterious Nazca holes? Strange spiral holes were built in the Peruvian Nazca desert and were known as Puquios. They’re still baffling archaeologists to this day. The holes were constructed to spiral downwards in funnel shape, as you can see from this photo. This could have been constructed in to play a key role in finding water, deep below the surface of the earth. Others believe it was constructed for storage. The region was clearly inhabited by an important civilization but not too much is known about them. The Nazca holes most likely had the capability of changing the entire landscape into lush, flourishing landscape, perfect for agriculture. This sophisticated designed must have had a been crucial for one of the mysterious civilizations that inhabited in Peru.

One of the great mysteries of ancient Peru is that the Inca did not have a system of writing, but communicated with a system of strings tied with knots. For the first time, centuries-old knotted textile accounting records known as quipus were found buried with well-preserved organic material. They were found at the archaeological site of Incahuasi, the base of operations for the Inca expansion along Peru’s southern coast. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Get More National Geographic: Official Site: http://bit.ly/NatGeoOfficialSite Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBNatGeo Twitter: http://bit.ly/NatGeoTwitter Instagram: http://bit.ly/NatGeoInsta The Inca Empire stretched from Colombia to central Chile and ruled more than 12 million people. They built organized cities and advanced road systems, yet they had no system of hieroglyphic writing, as the Maya did. Instead, they communicated via a system of knotted textile strings known as quipus. Deciphering how to read the quipus has become one of the great mysteries of ancient Peru. At the site of Incahuasi in the Cañete Valley, archaeologists have found—for the first time—dozens of quipus buried alongside centuries-old produce. They appear to have been used for accounting in agricultural storage houses to record the amount of wood, beans, corn, chili peppers, and other items moving throughout the complex. Six-hundred-year-old beans are so well-preserved in this dry valley that they look like dried beans you would see in a market today. Archaeologists found beans and other produce so they knew they were excavating storerooms, and then they found knots. National Geographic explorer Alejandro Chu explains that this is significant for quipu scholars because new discoveries could help bring them closer to understanding what the accounting records mean. “Usually you find quipus related to offerings, or funerary bundles in tombs. They are left and totally disconnected from their real use,” Chu says. “One of the main reasons why the discovery of quipus in Incahuasi is amazing is because it’s one of the first times we're finding them in their original context. They are in the places where they were used.” Quipus are made of a cotton or wool strings hanging from a main cord. The knots on the strings convey meaning through their location, direction, and type. Researchers already have a basic understanding of the numerical system incorporated in the quipus, where knots represent numbers. The hope is to move beyond mathematical operations to understanding non-numerical words or phrases from the agricultural product inventories. It is a whole new body of data to add to the Quipu Database Project and to understanding this interesting form of communication. Incahuasi, or “House of the Inca,” is an important and strategic Inca city. It served as the agricultural base of operations and administrative center for the Inca expansion along southern coast in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. It transformed the valley into a thriving, productive area. In two archaeological excavation seasons led by Chu, the team has already found almost 70 quipus, and most of the vast storeroom complex at the site is yet to be excavated.

For three years, a research team from the British Museum, the University of Reading, Royal Holloway University of London and the Universidad Nacional de San Cristobal de Huamanga set out to discover how the Inca Empire used a stone platform known as an ushnu as a symbol of political power. By enhancing our knowledge of how ushnus were built, their symbolism, what activities took place on them and what artefacts might be found around them, the project has increased our understanding of Inca culture and how they conquered the Andes to become one of the world's most successful civilisations. http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/research_projects/complete_projects/featured_project_inca_ushnus.aspx
