This volume covers the ancient Maya civilization of Mexico, Guatamala, Honduras, and Belize, spanning the period from 2000 B.C. to A.D. 1500.
Exploring the Lost Maya is the most complete history of the ancient Maya available on CD-ROM. Based on original photography and video taken at 40 different archaeological sites, the title covers the history, cultural achievements, and ultimate demise of the ancient Maya people.
In addition to the hundreds of full-screen, full-color photographs, Exploring the Lost Maya contains a historical reference written by leading Maya scholar Robert Sharer, Ph.D.; interactive maps of major Maya sites; 19th-century lithographs and historical photos; an interactive multimedia timeline of Maya history; movies on several facets of Maya culture; travel information for those planning to visit the sites; and much more.
Exploring the Lost Maya provides detailed site descriptions, interactive site maps, photographs, travel information, slide shows, and historical images of Chichen Itza, Tikal, Palenque, and many other Maya sites.
QuickTime VR panoramas take you right to the archaeological sites by letting you pan up, down, left, and right to explore 360-degree views of the Maya sites deep in the rain forests and arid regions of the Yucatan Peninsula.
An interactive multimedia timeline gives you a chronological overview of Maya history, including cultural milestones, military campaigns, and political events. Easy access to related photos, maps and explanatory text is just a click away.
Interactive maps of individual Maya cities and the entire Maya region allow you to roam the sites. Explore their important archaeological features, such as the classic lines of Copan's Great Ball Court and the complex geometric designs of Uxmal.
