CNN / AP Peru wants Yale to give back relics: "The Peabody Museum's web site says the artifacts became part of its collection 'by agreement with the Peruvian government.' The government permitted Bingham to take the relics with him, 'but the temporary character of the loan was never discussed,' Rodriguez said." I remember talking to archaeologists at Machu Picchu who deeply resented that the best artifacts had been taken to New Haven and they really could not mount a good site museum. Luckily for Peru, the setting and the stone architecture could not be uprooted 90 years ago.
