In the Americas With David Yetman

The Pride Of Guatemala: Tikal Of The Mayas

Season 1, Episode 3 of 10

Over two thousand years ago Mayas undertook construction of a city deep within the jungles of the Peten region of Guatemala. For over a thousand years the city of Tikal dominated the countryside and the region with its towering temples, affluent society, and hosts of scientists, engineers, and craftsmen. Host David Yetman accompanies archaeologists who explain the unfolding story of Tikal as new discoveries emerge a daily basis. Yetman visits new excavations within the temples and joins a festival at the home of Maya descendants who live not far away from the ancient site.
