Machu Picchu.  This famous Inca ceremonial city was recently featured on the "Top
Ten" TV show as being one of the world's ten greatest (still standing) architectural
wonders.  It was called "a miracle of human determination," because of the incredible
effort put into its construction -- and all without the use of the wheel or the pulley!

Machu Picchu was, among other things, an agricultural research facility at which the Incas
experimented with various soils and plants.  Each of these levels of terraced fields contain a
different type of soil mixture, which is how archaeologists were able to determine their purpose.
