Synopsis

NOVA: Lost King of the Maya
The disappearance of the Mayan nation has captivated archaeologists for decades. What happened to these obviously powerful people and what was their world like? These questions are partially answered in the program Nova: Lost King of the Maya. The city of Copan was headed by a militaristic leader who achieved legendary status. Information gleaned from crumbling ruins and faded hieroglyphics provides some clues as to the lifestyle of the Mayans. Nova follows Bill Flash into the Central American jungle as he strives to understand this lost civilization. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi

Odyssey: Maya - Lords of the Jungle
The Maya evolved an advanced culture with complex social, economic, and political developments. In this study, scholars investigate the significance of certain aspects of Mayan civilization, and propose new theories to replace old ones, in light of new discoveries. Maya: Lords of the Jungle reveals that the Mayans may have enjoyed a prosperous trade in salt, while raising crops in the jungle. No one is really certain why the culture disappeared around 900 A.D., but experts discuss theories involving dwindling natural resources as a possible factor. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
