Digging for the Truth: Machu Picchu, Lost City of the Inca

'Digging for the Truth' is a History Channel documentary television series. The show focuses on host Josh Bernstein, who journeys on various explorations of historical icons and ancient mysteries.

In 1911, Hiram Bingham, famed American explorer, stumbled across a remote Inca city atop a high peak in the Andes. The site was called Machu Picchu – perhaps the most famous ruin in the world. What was its purpose? Was it, like Bingham believed, a military fortress? Or did this glorious ruin have a secret purpose? From the mountains of Peru, Josh will follow in the footsteps of Hiram Bingham. He builds a log bridge across a raging river, examines the stonework at the site, and reviews ancient manuscripts to discover the 'true' purpose of Machu Picchu.

Enjoy this 44 minutes!
