Reading between the lines: SEAS student, a Marshall Scholarship recipient, seeks to decode ancient Incan language

January 24, 2019

In 1783, a group of Andean villagers met in secret to plan a revolt against the Spanish colonialists who had destroyed the once great Inca Empire. They encoded messages about the uprising onto two khipus, knotted cord devices used for Inca record keeping.

Technological advances, from the simple telescopes of the early 1600s to the first computer-controlled supernova search in the 1960s, offered new insights into these dramatic astronomical events....
