Summary:
The Maya created one of the most remarkable civilizations of the ancient world, erecting thousands of temples and palaces, and building immense cities on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and parts of Guatemala. Mayan civilization, uncovered by archeologists, began with an early group called the Olmec, who created the first Meso-American civilization around 1500 B.C. It flourished from 250 A.D. to 900 A.D., when the Maya made great strides in mathematics, astronomy and in creating calendars. Spaniard Hernan Cortes invaded in the 1520s and enslaved the Maya, exploiting their resources. In the modern world, the Maya of Yucatan and Guatemala have had to struggle economically and politically, but their strong ancestral heritage remains. Part of the multivolume Indians of North America Video Collection, each featuring the compelling history and culture of a particular Native American tribe.

Only available in the US.
