Not Just the Tudors


Inca Apocalypse

For many, the word Inca conjures up images of an ancient civilisation in South America, swiftly conquered by the Spanish in their quest for gold and Christian converts.

In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb sets out to find out the truth about the Incas with Professor R. Alan Covey. His research has revealed Inca society as wealthy, complex and cosmopolitan, and debunks the common narrative of a rapid, decisive Spanish conquest.

This episode was edited by Thomas Ntinas and produced by Rob Weinberg.
