Episode 70 -The Story of Machu Picchu with Mark Adams, author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu


   In my opinion, Mark has written the book to read before your trip to Machu Picchu.  It includes the history of the Incas and the Spanish Conquistadors plus the story of Hiram Bingham, the Yale lecturer whose expedition in 1911 found the ruins of the Incan site.
   The book also follows Mark (a self professed 'Martini Explorer') as he retraces the steps of Bingham's Peruvian expeditions.

   Did you know that there is a 'back door' to Machu Picchu? Or that there are many more Incan ruins to discover in Peru?  Find out more in our interview with Mark Adams, author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu





Secret of the Incas - 1954

Was this main character played by Charlton Heston based on Hiram Bingham?  And was this character the inspiration for Indiana Jones?

Hmmm, the main character seems to have a distinctive style.  Seems somewhat familiar
