Yale University has agreed to return artifacts discovered at Machu Pichu to the Peruvian Government which were discovered by Hiram Bingham nearly a century ago. This move places Yale in the company of other cultural institutions who have been returning cultural artifacts obtained under hazy, and sometimes illegal, circumstances. Yale released an official press release on the matter late last week.
The New York Times also wrote about the agreement between Yale and the Peruvian Goverment.
