Hiram Bingham III
Story of Yale’s ‘Indiana Jones’ Hiram Bingham & Machu Picchu

In 1911, American explorer Hiram Bingham III made public the knowledge of the Incan ruins at Machu Picchu and since then, the world has enjoyed the well-preserved and beautiful 15th century ruins located in Peru. Known to locals but gone unnoticed by the greater world until Bingham’s exploratory efforts in the 20th century, the Incan estate remained untouched by the Spanish invasion and serves as a beautiful artifact of the ancient culture. In this National Geographic special, historian Christopher Heaney, describes Bingham’s work and legacy.
