This series covers a lot of the latest and most up to date archeological findings which made it a real pleasure to watch. Overturning of decades old myths with modern finding made rediscovering Peru more exciting than the first time I read about the Incas!

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I want to know More! I'm hoping Dr. Barnhart will do another more in-depth lecture series on this topic and the Maya lectures too! If this was 101, we need 201! :-) The visuals were fantastic and the pace and flow from place to place, people to people was perfect. This topic has been my passion since childhood and I'm thrilled to finally hear more about it. Looking forward to checking out the books in the bibliography. I'd love this video format best though. :-)
