• Documentary on the Spanish Conquest Of The Incas

    Documentary on the Spanish Conquest Of The Incas Through a mix of crime-lab science, archeology, and history, this documentary presents new evidence that is changing what we know about the final days of the once-mighty Inca Empire. This probing story of archeological discovery begins in a cemetery crammed with skeletons that offer tantalizing clues about a fierce 16th-century battle between warriors of the collapsing Inca Empire and Spanish invaders. Now, the long-accepted account of a swift Spanish conquest of the Inca—achieved with guns, steel, and horses—is being replaced by a more complete story based on surprising new evidence, including what may be the first gunshot wound in the Americas. The largest empire in pre-Columbian America, the Inca ruled the most advanced civilization in ...

    From gold coins to sunken treasure to ancient tombs, these are the 13 biggest treasures ever discovered. Back in 2014, a middle aged couple in Northern California accidentally stumbled across 1400 gold coins while walking their dog. The old coins were likely stolen from a coin minting factory back in the Gold Rush era of California and hidden underground for a couple hundred years. The individual coins were auctioned off and ended up raising 11 million dollars. The couple has chosen to stay anonymous and refused to disclose where they found the gold to prevent a false gold rush in their area. Most of their 11 million dollar profit was donated to charity. The British are constantly sweeping their own land with metal detectors, in hopes of finding ancient treasures and trinkets lost to his...

Documentary on the Spanish Conquest Of The Incas Through a mix of crime-lab science, archeology, and history, this documentary presents new evidence that is changing what we know about the final days of the once-mighty Inca Empire. This probing story of archeological discovery begins in a cemetery crammed with skeletons that offer tantalizing clues about a fierce 16th-century battle between warriors of the collapsing Inca Empire and Spanish invaders. Now, the long-accepted account of a swift Spanish conquest of the Inca—achieved with guns, steel, and horses—is being replaced by a more complete story based on surprising new evidence, including what may be the first gunshot wound in the Americas. The largest empire in pre-Columbian America, the Inca ruled the most advanced civilization in the New World. By the time the Spanish arrived, the Inca had built the breathtaking city of Machu Picchu, pioneered a sophisticated system of high-altitude highways, and forged luxurious treasures of gold. So how could a tiny Spanish army of gold-seeking adventurers bring the powerful Inca Empire, home to over 10 million people, so quickly to its knees? According to traditional historical accounts, Francisco Pizarro and his band of fewer than 200 Spanish conquistadors, in search of treasure and power, vanquished the Inca emperor and his army in a bloody ambush in 1532. It was said that the Inca, overwhelmed by the Spaniards' horses and weapons, and vulnerable to the infectious diseases they carried, quickly succumbed and surrendered. But the latest archeological findings and historical analysis from leading experts, like archeologist Guillermo Cock and ethnohistorian Maria Rostworowski, both Peruvians, support a different version of the story, one that historians have long suspected. Their field research, forensic science, and recently discovered documents suggest that it took the Spanish years, as well as the formation of military alliances with thousands of Indian mercenaries, to defeat the Inca Empire. This documentary delves into the intriguing process of how science is helping to rewrite the history of the Spanish conquest. The story begins in Puruchuco, an Inca cemetery uncovered in the modern suburbs of Lima, where Guillermo Cock and his team of archeologists have found a strange group of more than 70 skeletons unlike any unearthed there before. Hastily buried in shallow graves, many of the corpses are shockingly mutilated, their bones crushed and marked with deep cuts, suggestive of battle injuries (see Grave Analysis). For Cock, these grim remains were an exhilarating find, providing fresh insight into the Incas' demise. To confirm suspicions about how these warriors buried in Puruchuco had been killed, Cock approached forensic scientists at the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science at the University of New Haven. One head wound was a perfectly round hole. Along its inner rim the forensic team identified fragments of iron, strongly suggesting that the hole was a bullet wound from a Spanish arquebus, a primitive but deadly gun. If true, it would be the first documented gunshot wound in the New World. Combining these latest developments with newly explored 16th-century historical records, the film recreates an untold final chapter of the conquest. What emerges is a never-before-told account of a protracted and intensely brutal war in which the weakened Inca were forced to battle not only a small core of well-armed conquistadors but also a far larger supporting army of Indians who were key to turning the tide against them.

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.

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.

▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ HISTORY DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/PlHistory We traveled to the Bolivian altiplano plateau for the first pre-Inca cultures. We crossed Lake Titicaca, walked through the arid Peruvian coast, we visited the oldest archaeological sites, witness rituals led by shamans and know the looters and grave robbers. Know everything that happened centuries before the Incas to become the lords of the Andes absorbing all previous cultures. 00:50 From the ruins of the former settlements of the Inca and Tiwanaku cultures, on lake Titicaca, the Cayahualla priests worship Tata Inti, the Sun God. The Tiwanaku culture appeared in about the fourth century AD, on the Bolivian plateau, just a few kilometres from the shores of Lake Titicaca. 04:13 On the islands of the Sun and Moon, we find numerous ruins of Tiwanaku origin, and which were later occupied by the Incas. The ancient mystical observatories are still used by the shaman in their ceremonies of invocation and meditation. 06:24 The majority of the coast of Peru is dry desert land. Nonetheless, this inhospitable land was the birth place of great civilisations, . this is the case of the Chimú culture who constructed irrigation channels, and created gardens in the desert. With their advanced techniques, they developed agricultural societies capable of supporting large numbers of inhabitants. The Chimú culture built cities like this one, Chanchán, perhaps the largest city in the world at the time, with around 100,000 inhabitants. 08:00 Still today, the fishermen along the coast of northern Peru use these boats, called “cattail horses”, to work the fishing grounds close to the shore. The cattail is a type of reed or bulrush which grows in the marshlands. Once it is cut and dried in the sun, it becomes tough and flexible, very resistant, and waterproof. At dawn, the fishermen set out to sea, expertly maintaining their balance as they ride the waves, using the most ancient of all surfing techniques. 11:02 The anthropomorphic face of the ‘Slitter of Men’s Throats’, at the Tomb, or ‘Huaca’ of the Moon, introduces us to the Moche culture, which flourished along these same coastal valleys, before the Chimú empire, from 200 BC to 700 AD. 15:22 The ‘San Pedro’ is a cactus which contains a powerful alkali with relaxant and hallucinatory properties mescaline, a mind-altering substance which induces a profound state of trance, also known as peyote. In the dark of night, and presided over by the shaman, rituals are held, at which they ingest the San Pedro. 21:34 The collection of over 16,000 skulls in the Archaeological museum in Lima makes it possible to study the pathology of these ancient cultures. These Nasca and Paraca skulls were subjected to a traumatic deformation, apparently simply for aesthetic reasons. A long, thin skull was a symbol of the upper class. 25:28 The discovery of the Tomb of the Lord of Sipan, a former president of Peru, was the most important archaeological discovery of America in the last decades. 30:00 These objects are made of gold, and come from the tomb of the Lord of Sipan. The police seized them from the grave robber Ernil Bernal, and they provided the clue for the archaelogist Walter Alva to discover this extraordinary Moche mausoleum. 30:32 The ‘Huaca Rajada’, the ‘Cracked Tomb’, is the burial complex of the Lord of Sipan. Excavations are still going on at this extraordinary find. 37:16 Every night, under cover of darkness, the robbers continue to find treasures, raiding the tombs of the Moche, Chimu, Chancay, Paracas, Nasca…The treasures they unearth are bought for pitiful sums by unscrupulous merchants, and sold on the black market. 41:00 We are leaving the coast and heading east, to discover the Chachapoya culture. We can see the ancient walls of their settlements along the cliffs and crags, totally inaccessible. Without a doubt, Kuelap is the most astonishing of all the Chachapoya cities. On the sacred mountain of La Petaca, there are over one hundred tombs in which they laid to rest their mummified dead. It is not known how they were able to construct them high up on the sheer rock face. The Chachapoya mummies are the product of a relatively sophisticated process. 49:21 And finally, the Incas arrived! Their Empire, the Tahuantinsuyo, extended from what is now Ecuador, to Argentina and Chile, absorbing all previous cultures. They became the masters of the Andes. They built astonishing cities, like the sacred Machupichu, abandoned since the arrival of the Spanish.

Discover the gems of the 15th Century Incan empire, a domain which covered much of South America. The splendid cities of Curzo and Chairana and the grandeur of Machu Picchu captivated the imagination and, unfortunately, greed of the Spanish conquistadors. Lifelike virtual construction gives us a close look at the massive sacred grounds of the Temple of the Sun at Cuzco, religious and political capital of a world known to generations of European adventurers as El Dorado. The Inca Empire or Inka Empire (Quechua: Tawantinsuyu[pronunciation?]) was the largest empire in pre-Columbian America. The administrative, political and military center of the empire was located in Cusco in modern-day Peru. The Inca civilization arose from the highlands of Peru sometime in the early 13th century, and the last Inca stronghold was conquered by the Spanish in 1572. From 1438 to 1533, the Incas used a variety of methods, from conquest to peaceful assimilation, to incorporate a large portion of western South America, centered on the Andean mountain ranges, including, besides Peru, large parts of modern Ecuador, western and south central Bolivia, northwest Argentina, north and central Chile, and a small part of southern Colombia into a state comparable to the historical empires of Eurasia. The official language of the empire was Quechua, although hundreds of local languages and dialects of Quechua were spoken. The Inca referred to their empire as Tawantinsuyu which can be translated as "The Four Regions" or "The Four United Provinces." Many local forms of worship persisted in the empire, most of them concerning local sacred Huacas, but the Inca leadership encouraged the worship of Inti—the sun god—and imposed its sovereignty above other cults such as that of Pachamama. The Incas considered their King, the Sapa Inca, to be the "child of the sun."

▶ SUSCRÍBETE! http://bit.ly/PlDoc Documentales Completos en Español todos los Martes, Jueves y Sábados! ▶ DOCUMENTALES COMPLETOS EN ESPAÑOL | http://bit.ly/DocCompletos Viajamos a la meseta del altiplano boliviano para conocer las primeras culturas preincaicas. Atravesamos el lago Titicaca, paseamos por la costa peruana árida y desértica, visitamos los más antiguos yacimientos arqueológicos, presenciamos rituales bajo la dirección de los chamanes y conocemos a los saqueadores y profanadores de tumbas. Todo lo que ocurrió siglos atrás antes de que los Incas se convirtieran en los señores de los Andes absorbiendo todas las culturas anteriores. 00:50 Desde las ruinas de antiguos enclaves de las culturas inca y tiahuanaco, en el lago Titicaca, los sacerdotes cayahuallas rinden culto al Tata Inti, al Dios Sol. La cultura Tiahuanaco, aparece en el altiplano boliviano hacia el siglo IV a pocos kilómetros de las orillas del lago Titicaca. 04:13 En las islas del Sol y la Luna, encontramos numerosas ruinas de origen tiahuanaco que más tarde fueron ocupadas por los incas. Los antiguos observatorios místicos, son utilizados todavía por los chamanes en sus ceremonias de invocación y meditación. 06:24 La mayor parte de la costa peruana es árida y desértica. Este territorio inhóspito, fue la cuna de grandes civilizaciones. Este es el caso de la cultura Chimú que supieron crear vergeles en el desierto por medio de canales de regadío. Gracias a estas técnicas avanzadas, lograron una explotación agrícola que pudo sustentar un elevado número de habitantes. La cultura Chimú llegó a tener ciudades como esta de Chanchán, quizás la más grande del mundo en su época, con cerca de 100.000 habitantes. 08:00 En la actualidad, los pescadores de la costa norte peruana, siguen utilizando estas embarcaciones llamadas “caballitos de totora” para faenar en los caladeros cercanos. La totora es una especie de anea o espadaña que crece en los terrenos pantanosos. Al amanecer, los pescadores se hacen a la mar con sus artes de pesca, y ponen a prueba su equilibrio cabalgando las olas con la más antigua de las técnicas del surf. 11:02 El rostro antropomorfo del degollador de hombres de la Huaca de la Luna, nos introduce en la cultura moche, que se desarrolló en estos mismos valles costeros, antes del imperio chimú, entre el 200 a. de C y el 700 d. de Cristo. En Perú se llama huaca a cualquier yacimiento arqueológico y huacos a las piezas que se rescatan de ellos. El número de momias encontradas en Perú es muy superior al de cualquier otro país del mundo. 15: 22 El San Pedro ha estado presente en la mayoría de las culturas preincaicas. Es un cactus que contiene un poderoso alcaloide indólico, la mescalina o peyote, una sustancia psicoactiva que provoca un profundo estado de trance. En la oscuridad de la noche y bajo la dirección de los chamanes, se celebran rituales en los que se ingiere el San Pedro. 21:34 La colección de más de 16.000 cráneos del Museo Arqueológico de Lima, permite el estudio patológico de estas antiguas culturas. Estos cráneos paracas y nazca fueron sometidos a una traumática deformación,al parecer tan solo por criterios estéticos. Los cráneos alargados eran símbolo de clase alta. 25: 28 El descubrimiento de la Tumba del Señor de Sipán, un antiguo gobernante de perú, fue el hallazgo arqueológico más importante de América de las ultimas décadas. 30:00 Estas son las piezas de oro, procedentes de la tumba del Señor de Sipan, que incauto la policía al huaquero Ernil Bernal, y que dieron la pista al arqueólogo Walter Alva para descubrir ese extraordinario mausoleo moche. 30:32 La Huaca Rajada popularmente se conoce al complejo funerario del Señor de Sipan. Las excavaciones continúan actualmente en este hallazgo prodigioso. 37:16 Cada noche, al amparo de la oscuridad, los saqueadores de tumbas continúan encontrando tesoros profanando tumbas moche, chimú, chancay, paracas, nasca… las piezas que encuentran, son adquiridas a precios miserables por los marchantes sin escrúpulos e introducidas en el mercado negro. 41:00 Abandonamos la costa y nos dirigimos al este, al encuentro de la cultura chachapoyas. Podemos ver las antiguas murallas de sus poblados en riscos y acantilados de acceso imposible. 49:21 Y por fin llegaron los incas. Su imperio, el Tahuantinsuyo, se extendió desde el actual Ecuador hasta Argentina y Chile, absorbiendo todas las culturas anteriores. Se convirtieron en los señores de los Andes. Construyeron ciudades insólitas, como la sagrada Machupichu, abandonada antes de la llegada de los españoles.

13 BIGGEST Treasures Ever Discovered

13 BIGGEST Treasures Ever Discovered

From gold coins to sunken treasure to ancient tombs, these are the 13 biggest treasures ever discovered. Back in 2014, a middle aged couple in Northern California accidentally stumbled across 1400 gold coins while walking their dog. The old coins were likely stolen from a coin minting factory back in the Gold Rush era of California and hidden underground for a couple hundred years. The individual coins were auctioned off and ended up raising 11 million dollars. The couple has chosen to stay anonymous and refused to disclose where they found the gold to prevent a false gold rush in their area. Most of their 11 million dollar profit was donated to charity. The British are constantly sweeping their own land with metal detectors, in hopes of finding ancient treasures and trinkets lost to history. In 2001 one such hobby treasure hunter, a retired electrician, was sweeping a grassy field with his metal detector, hoping to find something valuable in the dirt. He unwittingly uncovered a bona fide treasure - a 3.5 oz cup carved from 20 karat gold. The 3500 year old cup was made around the same time Stonehenge was built and was valued at £270,00 british pounds or roughly $390,000 USD. The Silverdale Hoard is the name given to one of the largest caches of Viking Silver ever found. This massive find was uncovered in North Yorkshire a few years ago in 2011 and is comprised of 1000 year old silver heirlooms, including 90 silver viking coins with the name of an unknown Viking king minted onto it. This mysterious hoard is still being analyzed to this day with hopes of uncovering more details of Viking history and culture. The continued study of the treasure makes the monetary value unclear, but the Silverdale Hoard is estimated to be worth at least 100,00 British pounds or about 145,000 US dollars. A sunken ship full of nearly 600,000 gold and silver coins was found at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean by a private treasure hunting company called Odyssey Marine. A priceless hoard of gold coins and hand crafted gold chains were found inside of the ship, which was called the Frigate Mercedes, and became the center of a controversy when Spain claimed ownership over the gold. A legal battle between Spain and Odyssey Marine ensued and lasted half a decade before the Spanish government prevailed. In 2015, Spain finally flew their 17 tons of priceless coins across the Atlantic. This massive load of treasure was found in 2009 when a farmer in Central England lost a tool in his field and called a friend with a metal detector to scan for it. In search of a farm tool, Terry accidentally uncovered the largest single hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. As excavators dug up the field they found a total of 3500 pieces of gold, silver, and garnet that would total to 3.285 million british pounds or 4.75 million US dollars, split in half by the man who owned the land and the man who found it. Amateur divers were exploring an old sunken dock off of the coast of Israel when they discovered 2,000 gold coins hidden in the sea bed. The centuries old currency was miraculously unmarred by age or water damage at the bottom of the ocean. There is no current estimated monetary value of the 20 pounds worth of coins, but they are considered extremely rare and valuable to historians. Even at the time of their minting in 900 AD they were considered a royal sum of cash. One of the most exciting and largest treasures on this list has come close to being discovered but hasn’t actually been found yet. In 2010 the successful art dealer, hobby treasure hunter, and eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn had the idea of hiding a huge fortune in a treasure chest and burying it somewhere for someone else to find. Fenn hopes to share the fun and thrill of treasure hunting which he has enjoyed throughout his life with others. If you were to discover Fenn’s Treasure with the set of 9 clues he has put out, you would be looking at a sweet 1 to 3 million US dollar cash out of gold nuggets and precious stones.
