Description

While Europeans lived in the Dark Ages, the Maya mapped the heavens and mastered mathematics. They constructed vast cities in jungle landscapes, leaving legacies in stone at places like Palenque and Uxmal. In overgrown sites, archaeologists now piece together this civilization with the aid of satellite technology. Modern-day experts provide windows into the Mayan world by interpreting ancient messages, inscribed for future generations. One of the titles in the series that explores the world's ancient empires. Learn about the religions, technologies, arts, and societies that preceded us through the discoveries of contemporary archaeologists. National Geographic's extensive photographic and map archives add richness to this series that transports readers to significant archaeological sites and brings ancient civilizations to life. Colour photos, maps, illustrations, index, and bibliography. Intermediate Spring 2012
