National Geographic archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert looks forward to the major discoveries to be made in the 21st century, including Peruvian archaeology, the tomb of Genghis Khan, and frozen Neanderthals, among other exciting potential archaeological finds.

References are made to Hiram Bingham and the world famous Inca citadel, Machu Picchu: “When the National Geographic Society awarded its first archaeology grant to Hiram Bingham in 1912, the archaeologist headed off to Machu Picchu with one of the most advanced pieces of technology at the time: a Kodak panoramic camera.” And contrasts this with modern times in which archaeologists are using “computers so powerful that they can process in a second what it would take humans thousands of years to do.”

National Geographic also mentions seven great possible discoveries including “Understanding the purpose of the Nasca Lines,” suggesting that questions about which archeologists have been racking their minds for decades are considered reasonable to answer.
