- Program Description
In the second hour, following Stonehenge, "Inca" explores an equally deep, New World mystery: How did the Incas of South America build magnificent temples and fortresses from huge blocks of tightly-fitting stone, and span deep chasms with gossamer grass bridges? The Incas had no arch, no wheel, no codified mathematics, no system of writing. And yet they did it.
