Summary:
Here, in the first ever NOVA/National Geographic Television collaboration, The Great Inca Rebellion presents stunning new evidence that is changing what we know about the final days of the once-mighty Inca Empire. In the suburbs of Lima, Peruvian archaeologists make a startling find--dozens of hasty burials with bones disfigured by violent, traumatic injuries. Forensic detectives identify the 500 year-old bones as victims of a fierce, little-known battle between club-wielding Inca warriors and Spanish cavalry. The battle turns out to be a decisive turning point that helps explain a long-standing mystery about the Spanish conquest of Peru. How, in 1532, did a tiny band of Spanish soldiers crush the mighty Inca empire, the most powerful civilization in the Americas? With the history-changing secrets from the Lima cemetery, NOVA reveals the untold final chapter of the conquest: not the long-accepted, account of a swift Spanish walkover, but a protracted war of astonishing brutality that almost led to the Spanish losing their precarious foothold in the Andes. Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators; a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; and closed captions.
