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. NOVA joins a new generation of archeologists as they probe areas of Machu Picchu that haven't been touched since the time of the Incas and unearth burials of the people who built the sacred site.

It's always so startling to see how little evidence and information is left behind and how much needs to be extrapolated by looking at nearby villages, excavation, bone studies, and so forth. Really amazing what was done and what was built. As per usual, these NOVA specials do tend to get pretty repetitive, but worth watching.
