In our ephemeral, digital world where everything is mediated through a computer screen and summoned by the click of a mouse, ancient objects in dusty old museums are essential to future of learning. In the late eighteenth century, a clay fragment from a piece of the world’s oldest literature overturned orthodoxies and advanced knowledge of the past. It’s an important lesson: evidence from the past will help us to rethink what we know which is never complete. Ancient history and the tangible artifact - something real, not virtual - will take us out of the cloud and bring us back down to earth.

Spanish/Nat XFA Peru's National Institute of Culture has played down reports published in a British scientific journal that claimed the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu could collapse at any moment. The journal claims that land beneath Machu Picchu, a U-N-E-S-C-O - declared World Heritage site, and one of South America's leading archaeological treasures, is unstable, raising fears of a major landslip. The journal cited research carried out by Japanese geologists whose analysis suggested that land beneath Machu Picchu was shifting at a rate of one centimeter every month. The study, conducted by Japan's Institute of Geophysics, concluded that not only was the site of Machu Picchu at risk, but the city of Cuzco as a whole. Cuzco, formerly the capital of the Inca kingdom, is constructed on the Tambomachay fault, whose activity they say, resulted in tremours across the region of Cuzco in 1950 and 1986. They said landslides around the fault could occur as a result of both seismic activity, heavy rains and excessive use. But Peru's Institute of Natural Resources downplayed the urgency of the journal's findings, saying that similar studies had been carried out over the years. Results from these studies were what the organisation based its Machu Picchu conservation plans on. But one of Peru's most eminent archaeologists, Federico Kauffman Doig, said that in order to preserve the site, the country had to limit the numbers of tourists visiting it. More than a thousand people a day visit Machu Picchu. The stone ruins high in the Andes Mountains are perched atop a jungle-covered peak and offer a spectacular view of the gorge below. For centuries, Machu Picchu was hidden because the jungle-covered, terraced ruins at 7-thousand- 875 feet were not visible from the valley floor. It was discovered in 1912 by U-S archaeologist Hiram Bingham. Although the purpose of Machu Picchu is still disputed, most archaeologists believe it served as a centre for religious ceremonies in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We have to take the analysis that has been carried out by the University of Kyoto very seriously, which was a joint study between Peruvian institutions and this Japanese university, with the support of UNESCO. Public and private institutions should be aware of the problems and committed to the protection of the historical site of Machu Picchu, and in particular they should support efforts made by the government to regulate public use of this site." SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) " We should not be frightened , let's say, about this problem, which has been caused alarmist reactions. We know that this has caused a lot of emotion,so much so that travel agencies have cancelled trips to Peru and Cuzco in particular because of the supposed risk of a landslide."

Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate.

In Part 5 of Engineering the Inka Empire: A Symposium on Sustainability and Ancient Technologies, Gary Urton presents Engineering a World with Strings Attached: The Place of the Khipu in Building the Inka Empire. The knotted-string recording device known as the khipu ("knot") was the principal device used for the storage of information by state agents and administrative officials in the Inka Empire of Pre-Columbian South America. This presentation examines the role of khipu record keeping in a variety of contexts relating to the building of state facilities in the empire—from roads to store houses to administrative centers. It is argued that the knotted string hierarchical arrangement of the khipu was important to the Inka not only as an instrument for record keeping but also as a structural paradigm for building the empire. Gary Urton is the Dumbarton Oaks Professor of Pre-Columbian Studies and Chairman of the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University. His research focuses on a variety of topics in pre-Columbian and early colonial Andean intellectual history, drawing on materials and methods in archaeology, ethnohistory, and ethnology. He is the author of many articles and editor of several volumes on Andean/Quechua cultures and Inka civilization. His books include: The History of a Myth (1990), The Social Life of Numbers (1997), Inca Myths (1999), and Signs of the Inka Khipu (2003). A MacArthur Fellow (2001--2005), he is Founder/Director of the Harvard Khipu Database Project. This symposium was webcast on November 14, 2013 from the Rasmuson Theater at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

In which John Green kicks off Crash Course US History! Why, you may ask, are we covering US History, and not more World History, or the history of some other country, or the very specific history of your home region? Well, the reasons are many. But, like it or not, the United States has probably meddled in your country to some degree in the last 236 years or so, and that means US History is relevant all over the world. In episode 1, John talks about the Native Americans who lived in what is now the US prior to European contact. This is a history class, not archaeology, so we're mainly going to cover written history. That means we start with the first sustained European settlement in North America, and that means the Spanish. The Spanish have a long history with the natives of the Americas, and not all of it was positive. The Spanish were definitely not peaceful colonizers, but what colonizers are peaceful? Colonization pretty much always results in an antagonistic relationship with the locals.

Visit our website: http://www.hispanaidiomas.com/spanish-school/ Peru, the Land of the Incas, is a magical and millennial country with an uncommon diversity and richness that offers visitors the possibility to live out a unique experience. History, culture, nature, adventure and more, all in one destination. Lima, the capital of Peru, is a cosmopolitan city combining modernity with historical and cultural richness. Located on the central coast of Peru, it is connected with the principal cities of the world through daily direct flights and connections. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Lima is a city that offers all the tourist services, the most demanding modern hotel infrastructure, the most varied cultural and nightlife entertainment in the country, the best cuisine of the Americas, and the gateway to all the natural, archaeological and historical tourist attractions of Peru. These reasons, and because Peru is recognized as one of the countries where Spanish is spoken most clearly and is the easiest for foreign visitors to understand, inspired us to open Hispana Spanish School in the district of Miraflores. One of the most beautiful and commercial areas of the city, where there are cafes, parks, crafts markets, movie theaters, bars, night clubs and the best restaurants in Lima, as well as hotels and hostels for every budget. Our school is located just a few minutes away from amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, and sports such as surfing, paragliding and hang gliding. Hispana Spanish School is a cultural center that specializes in teaching Latin American Spanish and culture to foreign residents, immigrants and travelers of all nationalities, occupations and ages. Our specialty is the teaching of Latin American Spanish, and our mission is to facilitate the acquisition of the Spanish language to our students from culturally diverse backgrounds so that they can effectively communicate within the Spanish-speaking world, whether to work, study, travel or vacation in Peru, or just to learn more about our fascinating and rich culture. Our Spanish courses and programs have been designed principally for adult students who want to learn Spanish correctly, through a communicative and effective methodology, in a pleasant, dynamic and culturally enriching learning environment. The study plan for Hispana Spanish School follows the guidelines and the classification of levels established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the Cervantes Institute of Spain. Additionally, the curricular structure of the Spanish Program is divided into 6 levels, from Basic to Superior, or Refinement. Our communicative methodology emphasizes oral and functional communication from the first day, without leaving out grammar, writing, pronunciation and intercultural competence. We also have a wide variety of private courses such as the Spanish Course for Portuguese speakers, Business Spanish, Medical Spanish, Spanish for Children and Teenagers, and DELE Preparation, the Official Spanish Diploma. Our Spanish teachers, who are university graduates, are certified as Professors of Spanish as a Foreign Language and have extensive experience teaching students from diverse countries and native languages. The flexibility of our courses allows us to offer students different options according to the length of their stay and their learning objectives. For this reason, we have daily intensive programs that can be taken from 1 to 19 weeks, and private courses in which students choose the frequency and number of hours per class. But what makes studying Spanish at Hispana easy and fun is the cultural immersion experience. Every weekday we organize social and cultural activities that allow students to learn more about the Peruvian culture and lifestyle, our city, and of course, to practice Spanish in a spontaneous and fun environment. Studying at Hispana was really helpful for me. Before I couldn't speak any Spanish, but now I can speak to anyone in almost any situation. All the teachers and staff here are very friendly. And it was also really fun because there are always activities like dance classes or cooking classes so it was easy to learn! The Exploring Lima program in which we go to interesting places in the city such as pre-Incan archaeological sites, the historic center of Lima, museums, or outdoor walks. Latin Dance Classes, Salsa and Merengue presented by an experienced instructor. Experiential Peruvian cooking classes, where students participate in the preparation of delicious traditional dishes and drinks.

This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report , from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish South America's Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest and river system on Earth. But the Amazon is disappearing at the rate of about eight hundred thousand hectares a year. This deforestation is caused by an increase in agriculture and cattle ranching and the building of roads and dams. Another cause is the illegal cutting of trees for logging companies. Now, a new study says ancient Amazonian farming methods could offer valuable lessons for today. The study looks at the pre-Columbian period. Christopher Columbus and other European explorers began arriving in the Americas in the late fourteen hundreds. The researchers studied a coastal wetland area where ancient farm beds and canals remain unchanged. The site is in French Guyana. A widely held belief is that pre-Columbian farmers used a great deal of fire to manage Amazonian ecosystems. But the scientists say their study calls this idea into question. It shows that raised-field farmers limited their burning to improve agricultural production.Jose Iriarte from the University of Exeter in England was lead author of the study. Mr. Iriarte says fire results in the loss of important nutrients for crops. When land is not being used for farming, periods without fire are most effective in rebuilding soil organic matter and preserving soil structure. "So in this sense," he says, "we interpreted that they were limiting fires because it was better to grow crops in these raised field systems." He says this fire-free method by the pre-Columbian farmers helped change the seasonally flooded savanna, or grassland, into productive cropland. Raised fields provide better drainage and soil aeration and also hold moisture during the dry season. This fire-free method of agriculture would have been labor intensive. It ended when up to ninety-five percent of the native people died from diseases brought by the Europeans. Mitchell Power from the Natural History Museum at the University of Utah says, "Once the Columbian encounter happens ... we start to see increased burning and a shift towards dry-land farming." People were then clearing forests and making their raised beds in the forests. The European colonizers brought slash-and-burn methods that remain a threat to the rainforest. Experts say at current rates, more than half of the Amazon's tropical rainforest could be gone by twenty-thirty. The study is in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Peru is a country in South America that's home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains. The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites. On Peru’s arid Pacific coast is Lima, the capital, with a preserved colonial center and important collections of pre-Columbian art Peru Quechua: officially the Republic of Peru (Spanish: República del Perú (help·info)), is a country in western South America. It is bordered in the north by Ecuador and Colombia, in the east by Brazil, in the southeast by Bolivia, in the south by Chile, and in the west by the Pacific Ocean. Peru is an extremely biodiverse country with habitats ranging from the arid plains of the Pacific coastal region in the west to the peaks of the Andes mountains vertically extending from the north to the southeast of the country to the tropical Amazon Basin rainforest in the east with the Amazon river. Peruvian territory was home to ancient cultures spanning from the Norte Chico civilization in Caral, one of the oldest in the world, to the Inca Empire, the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. The Spanish Empire conquered the region in the 16th century and established a Viceroyalty with its capital in Lima, which included most of its South American colonies. Ideas of political autonomy later spread throughout Spanish America and Peru gained its independence, which was formally proclaimed in 1821. After the battle of Ayacucho, three years after proclamation, Peru ensured its independence. After achieving independence, the country remained in recession and kept a low military profile until an economic rise based on the extraction of raw and maritime materials struck the country, which ended shortly before the war of the Pacific. Subsequently, the country has undergone changes in government from oligarchic to democratic systems. Peru has gone through periods of political unrest and internal conflict as well as periods of stability and economic upswing. Peru is a representative democratic republic divided into 25 regions. It is a developing country with a high Human Development Index score and a poverty level around 25.8 percent. Its main economic activities include mining, manufacturing, agriculture and fishing. The Peruvian population, estimated at 31.2 million in 2015, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Europeans, Africans and Asians. The main spoken language is Spanish, although a significant number of Peruvians speak Quechua or other native languages. This mixture of cultural traditions has resulted in a wide diversity of expressions in fields such as art, cuisine, literature, and music.
