Yale to return Inca artifacts

September 16, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Yale University has agreed to return thousands of Inca artifacts taken from Peru's famed Machu Picchu citadel almost a century ago, the government said. The university said on its website that some of the pieces would remain there temporarily for research, but did not indicate for how long.

Peru demanded the collection back last year, saying it never relinquished ownership when Yale's Hiram Bingham III rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911.
