This is a brief video of our recent trip to the Lost City of Machu Picchu.
Archaeologists and other scientists have been scratching their heads trying to figure out how remarkable ancient megaliths were constructed. These marvelous structures consist of gigantic stones that are so heavy that our modern machinery can hardly move and put them in place. This video takes us to the mysterious ruins in search of ancient technology and the secrets of megalith building. Examines the amazing stonecutting at Puma Punku, a site neighboring the ancient ruins of Tiwanaku near Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. He looks at whether the so-called “Inca walls”—found in Cuzco and at other sites such as Sacsayhuaman, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu—were really made by the Incas. The evidence seems to support the idea that they were actually constructed by a far older advanced civilization.

Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was constructed as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (1438–1472). Often mistakenly referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas" (a title more accurately applied to Vilcabamba), it is the most familiar icon of Inca civilization. The Incas built the estate around 1450 but abandoned it a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest. Although known locally, it was not known to the Spanish during the colonial period and remained unknown to the outside world until American historian Hiram Bingham brought it to international attention in 1911
