Puruchuco Fallen Inca Warriors


This is a nice and relatively short video I found on YouTube.

The description, "In the barren outlying foothills of the Peruvian capital Lima, fallen Inca warriors speak from shallow graves. An international team of scientists led by Peruvian archaeologist Guillermo Cock has uncovered the remains of Inca casualties from the 1536 Siege of Lima uprising, among them the first gunshot victim ever found from the Conquest era. For the first time, physical skeletal remains reveal the brutally violent historic transition from Inca imperial rule to the Spanish Colonial era."
