• Machu Picchu Decoded (Full Documentary)

    A National Geographic documentary about the fascinating and mysterious pre-Columbian Inca lost city of Machu Picchu. Deep in the Andean mountains lays a mysterious ruin named Machu Picchu. For 400 years it sat abandoned on its misty cliff, the quintessential lost city in the jungle. Rediscovered in 1911, it contained no written records or carvings, nothing that could shed light on its history. For a century since, it has defied the endless scores of visitors and scientists who attempted to understand its purpose. Who were the mysterious people who built it and why did they build it here? Today an international team of archeologists, engineers and scientists are finally piecing together the clues. Together they are discovering astonishing new burials, revealing the intricacies of its ingeni...

  • Unbelievable: Girl Frozen For 500 Yrs Looks Alive- Llullaillaco Maiden

    More than 500 years ago, three children climbed Llullaillaco volcano in Argentina and never came down, the probable victims of human sacrifice. Since their well-preserved mummies were discovered in 1999, scientists have studied them in hopes of reconstructing the last months of their lives. New evidence shows that all three regularly ingested coca and alcohol and suggests that the drugs might have played a more-than-ceremonial role in their deaths. The children—a young boy and girl, and a female archaeologists call the Llullaillaco Maiden, whom new research estimates to have been 13 years old—were part of an Incan sacrificial ritual known as capacocha, in which children were killed or left to die from exposure at the peaks of high mountains.

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.

Since their well-preserved mummies were discovered in 1999, scientists have studied them in hopes of reconstructing the last months of their lives. New evidence shows that all three regularly ingested coca and alcohol and suggests that the drugs might have played a more-than-ceremonial role in their deaths. The children—a young boy and girl, and a female archaeologists call the Llullaillaco Maiden, whom new research estimates to have been 13 years old—were part of an Incan sacrificial ritual known as capacocha, in which children were killed or left to die from exposure at the peaks of high mountains. Found sitting within small shrines, the bodies were naturally mummified by the cold, dry climate of the nearly 7000-meter mountain

▶ 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.

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."

Machu Picchu, sometimes called the Lost City of the Inca, was hidden from history for hundreds of years until its rediscovery in 1911. Built onto a mountainside with impressive and sophisticated engineering, it gives archaeologists a look into the everyday life of the Inca people. Today, it stands as the best surviving example of Inca architecture, and has been designated a World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
