Machu Picchu 1936

it must have seemed quite amazing to the first westerners who found their way up to this ancient place high in the Peruvian mountains. Where the stones are put together without any mortar and it's said that you cannot insert a blade of grass between the joins of the stones .. aparently, they knew of the wheel but did not use it in their system other than as a toy for children.
Brought to world attention in 1911 by an American archeologist working for Yale University it has divided opinion as to it's use, was it for sacrificial rites to the Gods or was it for the Inca royals ...
