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

Images of Machu Picchu proliferated during the middle of the twentieth century, in media as various as travel guides, films, art, and postcards. By the fiftieth anniversary of Bingham’s 1911 expedition, the ruin had become an icon of both the Inca and Peru.

As large groups flocked to the site, pamphlets and tourist agencies began to replace the local guides of decades past. Machu Picchu was now within driving distance of comfortable hotels and restaurants, with familiar routes mapped and scheduled.
