DAWN OF THE MAYA

Recent archaeological finds in Guatemala indicate that a sophisticated Mayan civilization may have flourished far earlier than previously thought, 2,000 years before Spanish conquistadors arrived in the New World. This National Geographic special presents the evidence, including a painted mural and the massive carved face mask of a sun god. Wednesday, May 12, at 8PM, PBS.

The time listed is ET for those who have access.

ckocian, I had this programmed to be recorded, but haven't had the chance to watch it yet. Sounds very interesting. Thanks

We saw it and was so interesting, didn't even take time to pop the popcorn!

I wasn't aware of just how many "green" trees it took to build the fires, that melted the lime, to make the temples.

Seems like the rain forest was being depleted even back then ...
