The Mayans of Central America left behind many magnificent ruins, testimony to a great civilization that lasted 1000 years. Some of the best examples are along the border of Mexico and Guatemala (called ‘A Forest of Kings’ by archaeologists). Many are not easy to get to. They include such sites as Palenque, Yaxchilán and Bonampak in Chiapas, Tikal and Calakmul in the central zone, and Dzibanché and Kohunlich in the eastern Rió Bec. This session provides photos and commentary from a recent expedition to the area by Bruce and Pam Matthews.

Presenter: Bruce Matthews
Bruce is a retired professor of Comparative Religion with an interest in historical civilizations and religions and their continuing impact on the contemporary world.
