Originally published in 1982, Monuments of the Incas is the most comprehensive overview of the major sites of the Inca empire, including the famed city of Machu Picchu, the Inca town and sun temple of Ollantaytambo, the mighty temple-fortress of Sacsahuaman, and the steeply terraced ruins of Pisac. Hemming brings the text up to date, incorporating results from the latest archaeological excavations, discoveries about Inca masonry techniques, and updated interpretations of form and function. With new chapters on Choquequirau, Vitcos, Chinchero, and the ruins along the famous Inca Trail. Edward Ranney's photographs convey the extraordinary accomplishments of the Inca masons-from sheer terrace walls and stairways to striking temple buildings and sculpted rock shrines-and the grandeur of their cities.
