Worlds of the Maya
Before most Western Europeans knew about the North American continent, the ancient Maya civilization occupied the eastern third of MesoAmerica.
Similar to the Greeks, they were religiously and artistically a nation, but politically sovereign states...as many as twenty such states existed on the Yucatan peninsula. Excelling in mathematics, astrology, massive building techniques and agriculture. Their wealth of scientific and artistic accomplishments continue to amaze modern scientists.
“Worlds of the Maya” explores Belize and Guatemala, two of the Countries that hold the stories and sites of the great Classical Mayan past. They also are home to much of the Maya culture of today. A little-known culture that has struggled through decades of formidable challenges...and faces enormous challenges in the future.
Join Sandy Mortimer on a journey to ancient cities, temples and caves, many not seen by outsiders, as well as today’s isolated villages, with their age-old rituals and ceremonies. Explore the life of the past...and the lives of the present...in the "Worlds Of The Maya”
