Peru says Yale has at least 40,000 Machu Picchu relics
Peru says Yale University researchers took more than 40,000 artefacts from the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu in the early 1900s, or 10 times the original estimate, the state news agency has reported.

A team from Peru's National Institute of Culture travelled to the US university in March to take an inventory of the pieces of pottery, jewellery and bones housed there, as part of an agreement to repatriate the relics.

Hernan Garrido Lecca, who is leading Peru's drive to reclaim the objects, released the inventory results to state news agency Andina.

The artefacts were sent out of Peru after a Yale alumnus, US explorer Hiram Bingham, rediscovered Machu Picchu in the Andes in 1911.

Peru has said the objects were loaned to Yale for 18 months but never sent back.

At the time of the find, the ancient city, now a popular tourist destination, was essentially forgotten, covered by thick forest in the mountains at 2,560 metres above sea level.

Museums around the world are facing demands by countries from Peru to Greece and Egypt to return ancient treasures.

Could you imagine some foreign country holding our national treasures, whatever they are?

One of our most prestigious universities takes those relics in the early 1900's and what have they done with them? Is there some great knowledge they discovered? are there papers they have wrote up about their research?

Like all Universities they take things and hide whatever they find. They should be defunded and closed down because they are useless to society.
