Ancient Maya: Archaeology Unlocks the Secrets of the Maya's Past (National Geographic Investigates)by Nathaniel Harris
Synopses & Reviews
As Europe endured its Dark Ages, the Maya mapped the heavens and mastered mathematics. They constructed vast cities in jungle landscapes, leaving legacies in stone at places like Palenque and Uxmal. In overgrown sites, archaeologists now piece together this civilization with the aid of satellite technology. Modern-day experts provide windows into the Mayan world by interpreting ancient messages, inscribed for future generations.
Explores the world of the Maya, which spans five centuries of history in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador.
