How do we have accounts of the Inca origins when they didn’t have a writing system? In this episode we step away from the narrative to discuss our sources. Spanish Chroniclers, Indigenous Accounts, Archaeological research and Ethno-Historical accounts will all be used for the show going forward. We discuss the pros and cons to some of these sources because (Surprise!) accounts by the conquerors and conquered carry some bias with them.
