Encountering Ancient America: Machu Picchu in Popular Culture, 1911-1965
February-April 2018

In 1911, Hiram Bingham III (a lecturer on South American history at Yale University) traveled through Peru in search of Vilcabamba, the last Incan capital. Melchor Arteaga, a farmer in the Urubamba Valley, led him to the site of Machu Picchu. Bingham led a subsequent expedition in 1912 and publicized its findings in National Geographic, which devoted the entire April 1913 issue to his account. The publication featured 250 photographs from the site and surrounding area, as well as the first major description of the site for an English-reading audience.
