Product Description & Reviews
Uncover the secrets of ancient civilizations as NOVA journeys to an archaeological site where teams of experts use traditional techniques to test their hypotheses. Explore the magnificent mountainside citadels, and marvel as villagers create a 150-foot suspension bridge using nothing but grass. How'd they do it? The Inca people built huge structures in the Andes using only Stone Age technology, structures which remain standing today, mortarless. Nova, in Secrets of Lost Empires: Inca, part of the Secrets of Lost Empire series, sent a team of experts to Peru to test hypotheses by building smaller structures using only Incan engineering, as well as by watching modern natives build enormous suspension bridges out of nothing but grass. It's hard work, but perseverance is the key. Completely engrossing, Secrets of Lost Empires: Inca shows us that high-tech isn't the answer to everything as ageless, monumental structures are shown to be built with nothing but muscles, rope, and ingenuity. --Rob Lightner
