Added to Side Links: "Conquest of the Incas"

I have added links to the video on YouTube of Michael Woods' documentary on the conquest of Peru from the series "Conquistadors."

Though the emphasis early on is on the ostensible subject of the program, Francisco Pizarro and his band, the account shifts toward the Inca's resistance to the Spanish, and the accounts cited become those native chroniclers, including Waman Puma.

I find this documentary moving every time I view it, and Peru's physical and historical landscape are presented in all their depth and breathtaking beauty. It is one of my favorite documentaries on Peru.
