Engineering an Empire – The Maya

At the height of its glory, this mysterious civilization ruled a territory of 125,000 square miles across parts of Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Belize. What was initially a modest population of hunters and gatherers expanded into more than 40 flourishing city-states who engineered sky-high temple-pyramids, ornate palaces and advanced hydraulic systems.
This video answers the question about where this civilization came from and what catastrophes caused the collapse of this innovative civilization?

From the Temple-Pyramids at Tikal, to the royal tomb at Palenque, to the star observatory at Chichen Itza, this episode will examine the architecture and infrastructure that enabled the rise and fall of the ancient Maya civilization.
