Movie Reviews

Little known history revealed
J. Mark Taylor | Olympia, WA USA | 02/25/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Most of us know little of civilizations of the pre-Columbian Americas. These "lost worlds" were in their time some of the most vibrant places on Earth. Yet almost nothing was known, and much of that speculation. The stones had messages, but we didn't know how to read the writing until very recently. Now that we can read the inscriptions, a whole complex story of these people has come to light. This video is a good puzzle piece for understanding the mystery of the Maya."
