By any standard, Peru's Machu Picchu checks in as one of the most endlessly intriguing man-made structures in the Western Hemisphere. Though it remains a symbol of the ingenuity that characterized Incan engineering, with advanced aqueduct systems and emerald green terraces, it was completely abandoned in the Middle Ages. Various unanswered questions linger, including the Incans' reason for building it in such an odd location (on the steep face of a mountain), the nature of the population that inhabited it, and of course the reasons for the abandonment itself. In this special from the PBS series Nova, a group of archaeologists journey to Machu and investigate areas of the structure that haven't been touched since the Incas built it. They also embark on a "trail of clues" that initially surfaced in 1911, with explorer Hiram Bingham's discovery of the site itself. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

display_description"Perched atop a mountain crest, mysteriously abandoned more than four centuries ago, Machu Picchu is the most famous archeological ruin in the Western Hemisphere and an iconic symbol of the power and engineering prowess of the Inca. In the years since Machu Picchu was discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911, there have been countless theories about this "Lost City of the Incas," yet it remains an enigma. Why did the Incas build it on such an inaccessible site? Who lived among its stone buildings, farmed its emerald green terraces, and drank from its sophisticated aqueduct system?"--Container.
