LOST TREASURES OF THE ANCIENT WORLD (1998): 6. MAYANS & AZTECS – ANCIENT LANDS OF THE AMERICAS (DVD description) A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME… Stroll down a busy street in Pompeii… watch gladiators fight in the Colosseum… See Hadrian’s Wall unravel over rolling hills or visit the Great Pyramid when it was new. For the first time in three thousand years we can witness again how the wonders of ancient world might have looked in their heyday. Using detailed reconstructions, stylish new photography, and the latest 3D computer animation techniques, “Lost Treasures of the Ancient World” brings the monuments of civilizations of the past back to life. 6. MAYANS & AZTECS: ANCIENT LANDS OF THE AMERICAS The Mayan civilization enjoyed a glorious period from 325 A.D. to 925 A.D. Skilled potters, weavers, and farmers, the magnificent temples at Chichén Itzá and Copán are among the legacies of peace-loving people. The Aztecs of Mexico are remembered for architecture, sculpture, art, and for their religious rituals which included large-scale human sacrifice.
