The voyage of Christopher Columbus in 1492 united two worlds: one was the world of the European civilization and the other was an entirely new world, unknown to the Europeans. In easily understood language, this program explores the ancient Americans, including the sophisticated Maya civilization and the vibrant but bloody culture of the Aztecs. The first part traces the roots of human culture in the New World and explains the emergence of civilizations in Central and South America. Students will learn about the mysterious Olmec culture and the brilliant civilization of the Mayas. Students then explore the ancient peoples of Central Mexico, including the fabulous civilization at Teotihuaca, the Toltect Culture, and the Chichimec barbarians.

Only available in the US.
