In the Americas With David Yetman

Ancestors Of The Ancient Mayas

Season 8, Episode 4 of 10

The archaeological site of Palenque in the Mexican state of Chiapas is Mexico's crown jewel of Classic Maya architecture. New radar technology penetrates the ground's surface and has revealed that two millennia before Palenque's rise to stardom, Mayas of the lowlands were constructing immense causeways and stepped temples. The same new techniques reveal tens of thousands of ancient structures previously undetected.
