US returns Machu Picchu artefacts | Incas | Scoop.it

The US returns to Peru the last artefacts taken from Machu Picchu by archaeologist Hiram Bingham, who rediscovered the Inca citadel in 1911.

The last of the artefacts taken from Machu Picchu by American archaeologist who rediscovered the Inca citadel have been returned to Peru.

 

More than 35,000 pottery fragments and other pieces were flown from Yale University to the Andean city of Cusco.

 

They had been taken to the US by archaeologist Hiram Bingham, who brought the site to international attention in 1911.

 

The move completes a deal signed in 2010, following legal action by Peru.
