Breakthrough reported in Yale, Peru talks over artifacts





In what might be its most significant concession to Peru since 1912, Yale will allow the country to see a full inventory of the artifacts it has kept in New Haven since Hiram Bingham III brought them back from Machu Picchu nearly a century ago.

The breakthrough in negotiations, confirmed Friday by Yale officials and announced Thursday during an unrelated press conference in Lima, is not only important in that it could lead to the return of certain artifacts Peru officials have been requesting since the mid-1910s but also because it indicates that relations between Yale and Peru have improved under the recently installed government of President Alan GarcĂ­a.
