In just two short generations, the Inca exploded out of their homeland and conquered an area the size of the Roman empire. What had once been proud civilisations were swept aside and incorporated into the new state.

This episode charts the rise of Inca from their mythical origins, through their centuries as a weak city state, and all the way to their greatest heights.
