The 1912 Yale Peruvian Scientific Expedition Collections from Machu Picchu: Human and Animal Remains

Distinguished archaeologists Richard L. Burger and Lucy C. Salazar present here three essays on human and animal bones recovered from Machu Picchu in 1912. Incorporating data and techniques previously unavailable to archaeologists and osteologists, these essays vividly illustrate that archaeology, in addition to historical narratives, plays an essential role in constructing a complete Inca history.
