Maya history is truly astonishing. Regarded as the most sophisticated culture in the New World, many of its great cities were mysteriously abandoned a thousand years ago, rediscovered by explorers in the 1800s, then rediscovered again when Maya writing was decoded in the 1970s. Today, LIDAR imaging is uncovering ruins hidden in Central American jungles and we are rediscovering Maya society yet again. Anthropologist and history buff Dr. Newton offers an enlightening overview of what we know about the Maya and what new wonders may soon be revealed.
