It's seems incredible to me that the Incas and the Aztecs and their forerunners never knew each other existed.
Their respective Southern and Northern borders were'nt THAT far apart.
It seems like the artifacts should be sent back to Peru. If it were Venezuela, however, I'd tell Hugo Chavez to shove it.
Artifacts on display at the Yale Peabody Museum's "Machu Picchu: The Mystery of the Incas" include a bronze knife pendant and dragon-shaped bottle. (Courtesy Yale University)
I'm reading this book right now:
I picked it up at the bookstore at Mesa Verde. Great book---I can hardly put it down---among other things, the author makes a very good argument that Machu Picchu was the Inca equivalent of an agricultural experiment station!
