The "mysterious Maya" were an impressive civilization, one of the earliest to settle in the Americas. Although historians don't know why the civilization failed, they do know that it spanned 3,000 years and had a population of about 15 million people. Established in what is now part of Mexico and Central America, the Maya built great cities, temples and pyramids, and were quite advanced in engineering and astronomy. Students will learn about Mayan religious beliefs, hieroglyphs, inventions, the people, food and culture. Hosted by the intriguing archeologist, Arizona Smith, and his young detective-in-training, the program includes a teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books and Internet resources. Part of the multivolume Ancient Civilizations for Children Video Series.

Only available in the US.
