Ancient Maya, The: Power Centers

Item Number:
50 min.
Closed Caption:
A & E Entertainment
Travel to the Yucatan and Guatemala to explore how the Maya were able to build the city of Tikal without metal tools or beasts of burden. It had monumental masonry temples, lavish sports stadiums, and palaces all connected by an elaborate system of paved roads. Host Michael Guillen demonstrates the tools used by the Maya to carve limestone; he shows how they made cement and built roads that still exist today and he examines the mysterious acoustical phenomena in the ball court and pyramid at Tikal. Journey up the Usumacinta River to the ancient city of Yaxchilan to explore the remains of what some believe to be the largest suspension bridge ever built until the 14th Century.
