Mystery Explored: New Maya Revelations
Expedition Dates: July 22 - August 4, 2006


Archaeologists have traditionally placed the height of the Maya civilization in the First Millennium AD. However, revolutionary discoveries in Guatemala are now challenging those views.  When did the Maya Civilization truly reach its peak? To find out, I explored the origins of the Maya throughout Mexico and the Central American rainforest. I climbed the tallest Maya pyramid, shoveled muck from a jungle swamp, and revealed the known oldest mural in the Maya world.
