Machu Pichu

This PBS documentary takes you high into the Peruvian Andes to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu, a 500-year-old stone city. Using cutting-edge, 3D laser-scanning technology, structural engineer Steve Burrows leads his team of experts to scan the sacred Inca city, asking three questions: How did the Inca build a city atop a mountain ridge? How were the terraces constructed? And how did they supply water to the city?
