The Maya

We use archaeology to bring the Maya to life, illustrating their beliefs, maths, numbers, astrology, calendar, and writing. We can also look at Christopher Columbus, the impact of the Conquistadors, and the clash of civilisations.

  • Their view of the world and the cosmos

  • Writing and numbers

  • The Lords of Time.  Astronomy and the calendar

  • Smells, sounds, and sacrifice

  • Potatoes, chocolate, peppers, and tobacco

  • The coming of the Conquistadors

  • Steel, gunpowder and horses

  • Warfare and games
