Deep in the Yucatan Peninsula lie ancient stone cities reclaimed by the jungle, where a calendar dominated lives, majestically feathered kings ruled like gods and tall stone pyramids soared above the treetops. There in those jungles, stand ancient stones etched with dates and writings that tell the story of one of history’s most fascinating and dynamic civilisations. These belong to the ancient Maya. A people that made advancements in architecture, mathematics, and astronomy that we can still learn from today.

The script was developed and the video was created by our good friend Cogito. Check out his channel for more historical content: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKMnl27hDMKvch–noWe5CA/
