Telegraph Tintin and the finder of lost cities
: "It is fair to say that Inca studies, compared to Egyptology say, are still in their infancy, which makes it an even more exciting area to be working in. There are also some colourful and charismatic explorers working in the field, like the American Gene Savoy, who discovered Espiritu Pampa (the last refuge of the rump Inca court after the Spanish conquest) 35 years ago. He is still leading expeditions to Peru - that is when he's not at home in Nevada being worshipped by the cult he has set up, who think of him as a living God." The account by Hugh Thomson, an Englishman who has explored the Andean foothills for two decades.
