Machu Picchu was not only inhabited by the Incas, according to a DNA study

Machu Picchu was not only inhabited by the Incas, according to a DNA study

A DNA study published by the journal Science Advances has revealed that the Inca city of Machu Picchu was inhabited by people of different ethnic origins, including the Incas, the Aymara and the Amazon.

The study is based on the analysis of the remains of 17 individuals that were buried in Machu Picchu. The researchers found that the individuals had different genetic markers, suggesting that they were not all from the same population.

The results of the study are surprising, since until now it was believed that Machu Picchu was an exclusively Inca city. It is now suggested that the city was a meeting place for different cultures, which could have had an important impact on its development.

The researchers believe that the study may help clarifying a part of the history of Machu Picchu and its role in the Inca Empire. They believe as well that the study can help improve understanding of Andean culture and its diversity.

These findings are important because they change the way we see Machu Picchu

For a long time, Machu Picchu has been seen as an isolated and sacred city, built by the Incas for their personal enjoyment. However, the study’s findings suggest that Machu Picchu was a much more complex city than previously thought. It was a meeting place for different cultures, and was an important political, economic, and religious center.

The study findings also change the way we view the Incas. The Incas were once thought to be a single type of people, but the study suggests they were a much more diverse society than previously thought. The Incas were open to influences from other cultures, and they were willing to work with other people to achieve their goals.

The study is a reminder that history is complex and we can’t always make things simple. This shows how important it is to keep investigating and learning about the past, so that we can have a better understanding of the present.
