Treasures of PeruStreaming Video - 2005
Textbooks tell the dramatic story of the imprisoned Inca who paid a ransom of a roomful of gold to the Spanish Conquistador Francisco Pizarro and, for most people, this event in 1532 and the subsequent fall of the Inca empire, marks the beginning of the history of Peru. However, today's findings enhance yesterday's knowledge of history. Dr. Dwayne L.
