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.

How did the ancient civilization of Sumer first develop the concept of the written word? It all began with simple warehouse tallies in the temples, but as the scribes sought more simple ways to record information, those tallies gradually evolved from pictograms into cuneiform text which could be used to convey complex, abstract, or even lyrical ideas.

The temples which kept people together were not only religious places, but also warehouses which stored the community's collective wealth until it was needed to get through lean years. As the donations came in, scribes would count the items and draw pictures of them on clay tablets. The images quickly became abstract as the scribes needed to rush, and they also morphed to represent not just an image but the word itself - more specifically, the sound of the word, which meant that it could also be written to represent other words that sounded similar (homophones). Sumerian language often put words together to express new ideas, and the same concept applied to their writing. As people came to use this system more, the scribes began to write from left to right instead of top to bottom since they were less likely to mess up their clay tablets that way. Those who read the tablets didn't appreciate this change, so the scribes rotated the words 90 degrees allowing tablets to be rotated if the reader preferred - but this made the images even more abstract, until eventually the pictograms vanished entirely to be replaced by wedge-shaped stylus marks: cuneiform. Many of Sumer's neighbors adopted this invention and helped it spread throughout the region, though completely different writing systems developed independently in cultures situated in places like China and South America! ____________ ♪ Get the intro music here! http://bit.ly/1EQA5N7 *Music by Demetori: http://bit.ly/1AaJG4H ♪ Get the outro music here! http://bit.ly/23isQfx *Music by Sean and Dean Kiner: http://bit.ly/1WdBhnm

There's a new Crash Course poster with all your favorite World History characters! Czech it: http://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-characters-poster In which John Green teaches you about the Mughal Empire, which ruled large swaths of the Indian Sub-Continent from 1526 to (technically) 1857. While John teaches you about this long-lived Muslim empire, he'll also look at the idea of historical reputation and how we view people from history. Namely, he'll look at the reputations of Mughal emperors Akbar I and Aurangzeb. Traditionally, Akbar I is considered the emperor that made the Mughal Empire great, and Aurangzeb gets the blame for running the whole thing into the ground and setting it up for decline. Is that really how it was, though? It turns out, it's complicated.

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.

In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. 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.

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."

Dr. Simon Martin, Associate Curator, American Section, Penn Museum. By at least 1000 BCE the ancient Maya were building massive temple platforms in the midst of dispersed settlements, an approach to urbanism that persisted for almost two millennia. The low density of these settlements was uniquely suited to their rainforest environment, based on an “agro-urban” system in which foodstuffs and other important crops were produced within the heart of the city, right up to the edge of palaces and ceremonial plazas. Major questions remain about how this system came about and functioned through time. Dr. Simon Martin’s takes us on a tour of the jungle cities, exploring the origins, operation, and ultimate collapse of one of the world’s most sophisticated tropical civilizations.

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. John teaches you about early Spanish explorers, settlements, and what happened when they didn't get along with the indigenous people. The story of their rocky relations has been called the Black Legend. Which is not a positive legend. Turn on the captions. You'll like it!

You have to challenge” Recently a team of fossil hunters working in Kenya came upon a set of fossilised teeth and a series of bones. Their find set in motion a chain of events that ignited excitement across the scientific world, for if they were correct in their findings, not only would they have found the oldest human ancestor, but much of the received wisdom humankind’s evolution would have to be rewritten. This programme is the story of their discovery and the implications it has for understanding of how we split from the apes. Dubbed “Millennium Man” by the press, he is twice as old as the most famous skeleton in the world “Lucy”. The remarkable link between Millennium Man and humans is his ability to walk on two legs, overturning previously accepted scientific opinion on why, how and when humans began to walk. As Professor Senut who worked on the project points out, “Science doesn’t proceed or get better with established ideas. You have to challenge” and Millennium Man seems to be challenging an awful lot of accepted science. Documentary first broadcast in 2001. Content licensed from DRG. Produced by JWM Productions.

The world owes much of its cultural legacy to Constantinople's walls. When Constantinople was under seige by neighboring enemies, the Roman city's elaborate system of moats, outer walls, and inner walls stood tall. Surviving numerous fire attacks, the walls were eventually brought down by more modern tools of warfare, but, thankfully, classical culture survived. Lesson by Lars Brownworth, animation by Woland.

In Part 6 of Engineering the Inka Empire: A Symposium on Sustainability and Ancient Technologies, Christine Fiori and Cliff Schexnayder present Road Construction Technology in the High Cordillera. The engineers of the Inka Empire had a unique consciousness of nature, with construction skills founded in lessons learned from careful observation of the power of nature. The Inka Road demonstrates the superior Inka understanding of nature. Built without the use of iron, the wheel, or stock animals, it represents important milestones in the development of civil engineering knowledge. The road's creators understood the fundamental laws of nature and employed impressive engineering strategies in response to the challenges presented by the aggressive physical geography of western South America. The Inka Road, or Qhapaq Ñan, in scale alone is one of man's monumental engineering achievements. This engineering masterpiece rests on careful attention to the power of water, the energy expended by the users of the road (man and llama), and the energy required to construct the road. Keeping these concepts in mind, with the support of the University of Piura, Peru, and the assistance of Professor Luis Gerardo Chang Recavarren, the researchers investigated the construction techniques employed by the Inkas in the building of the road. Ground penetrating radar technology was employed to assess the subsurface structure of the road, slopes were measured, and grade and width were verified to understand the construction methods utilized. The investigation of the various methods to control water and erosion helped in developing an understanding of why the road has endured for centuries. Christine Fiori is the Associate Director of the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech. She received her PhD in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Geotechnical Engineering from Drexel University in 1997. Her interest in ancient construction led to a National Science Foundation grant to explore the construction techniques of the Inka, specifically the Inka road throughout Peru. Fiori leads the Construction Engineering and Management program and also facilitates the service learning programs for the Myers-Lawson School of Construction. She has led diverse groups of student teams to Vietnam, Kenya, Belize, Haiti, and Guatemala to complete construction projects and community engagement programs. Currently her work is focused in Haiti and Belize. Cliff Schexnayder (Choctaw) is the Emeritus Eminent Scholar, Del E. Webb School of Construction, Arizona State University. He holds Civil Engineering BS and MS degrees from Georgia Institute of Technology and a PhD from Purdue University. Before entering academia he worked with major heavy/highway construction contractors as field engineer, estimator, and corporate Chief Engineer. In South America he has taught construction engineering at the Universidad de Piura and Ricardo Palma Universidad in Peru. Schexnayder is a member of the National Academy of Construction, the Academia Panamericana de Ingeniería, and is a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). He served as chairman of the ASCE's Construction Division and the Transportation Research Board's Construction Section. This symposium was webcast on November 14, 2013 from the Rasmuson Theater at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

On an Aldeburgh Residency in March 2015, The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments gathered to test some of the experiments and observations that Francis Bacon lays out in his Sylva Sylvarum, ’A Natural History in Ten Centuries’. The aim was to use the sounds and ideas that emerged from that process to make new compositions – 21st century translations of Bacon’s ideas. These new pieces will be placed within a musical context that Bacon would have been familiar with, some hauntingly beautiful 17th century music, to form 'Sound House'. By the end of the week's residency the group had gained considerable insight into how sound was perceived in the 17th century and how miraculous effects like echoes and sympathetic vibration must have seemed to people living then. This video details some of the experiments that were carried out.

The Anunnaki Series S1E5: Quest for Aztec and Inca Gold ================= Episode Summary ================= In the disguise of discovery and colonization, explorers commissioned by the Spanish throne were recorded in the pages of history as ruthless agents of death and destruction; stealing land, resources, and especially gold. -- Columbus is celebrated as a hero in America allocated a calendar highlight as a national holiday. Hernán Cortés launched his Mexican campaign of terror in the year 1519 and a mere two years later on August 13th, 1521 final victory was declared at Tenochtitlan, the current capital of the Aztec Empire. -- Francisco Pizarro González was a Spanish conquistador who led an expedition that conquered the Inca Empire of Peru in 1532. He captured and killed Incan emperor Atahualpa and claimed the lands for Spain. Pizarro was merely repeating what his Spanish counterpart Cortés had completed only 11 years prior in Mexico, and his plans as a barbarous invader, destroyer of culture, and bringer of death and disease to the Incan empire in Cajamarca, Peru equaled that of Cortéz . -- Could the Spanish conquests of both Mexico and Peru have truly been the manifest chess moves between the Anunnaki clans, whose hidden agenda was gold acquisition at any cost? music by www.bensound.com http://www.geraldclark77.com http://www.artisticvegan.com
