Hard-to-Reach Heritage: Israel and Peru

17 October 2010
Presented by Diana O'Carroll, Tom Birch.


We make our way to some of the least accessible bits of heritage this month: Naked Scientist Laura Soul treks to Machu Picchu and we hear about the fenced-off Palestinian heritage in Israel. Also this month: tracking down The Plague's bacterial DNA, sanding down a Norwegian Pompeii and a DIY archaeological survey!

In this episode

How has the Israeli-Palestinian border affected people?
with Isabelle Humphries

'Mini Pompeii' found in Norway
with Lars Sundström, Museum of Cultural History, University in Oslo


Hello, I believe it should be noted that the Inca Trail described is NOT the only way to reach Machu Picchu. I understand it adds to the "hard-to-reach" narrative but it is important to clarify so as not to deter people from visiting. A 30 min bus ride is available from the neighboring town of Aguas Calientes.
