Yale Returns Peruvian Antiquities

Yale University agrees to return to Peru hundreds of artifacts from the Incan site of Machu Picchu. The objects have been at the center of a debate that has lasted almost a century, and culminated last year when the government of Peru threatened to sue Yale to get the artifacts back.
