Description

The Incas, an American Indian people, built a vast and powerful empire in the Andes Mountains of Peru in the 1400s. Fabulous archaeological discoveries have aided our understanding of this marvelous culture. Inca mummies have been found on frozen mountaintops, on volcanoes, and in the outskirts of Lima, Peru's capital city. Tombs have yielded artifacts which give clues to the spiritual life of these ancient people. And scientists are still gaining new insights from their study of the Inca city of Machu Picchu, discovered in 1911.
