I watched this show on The History Channel about Mayans last night.

The culture was so a head of its time and then the Spanish came in and wiped them out in the name of a some bearded white guy.


At any rate some of the information was really fascinating such as the Mayan calendar, their concepts on time, astrology, architecture, etc.

  1. Yeah, I watched a similar show on PBS. Amazing stuff! (Except for the human sacrifice thing. Ugh.)

    I've long been fascinated by ancient civilizations and how truly advanced the were.

    Many years ago Doug and I had a chance to visit some Mayan ruins at Tulum. I'm glad we had that opportunity.
