The civilization of the Maya in Mexico and Central America is one of the world's most intriguing archaeological puzzles. At one time a sophisticated civilization, around 800 A.D., cities were abandoned, temples left unfinished, and a powerful culture vanished. Charles Gallenkamp unfolds the many wonders of this lost world and provides a rare look at the exciting explorations that are uncovering many of its long-buried secrets. [via]
