Overview

?De dónde provenían los conocimientos que atesoraba el pueblo maya? ?Qué se esconde tras su misteriosa desaparición? ?Fueron los mayas las primeras víctimas de una conquista salvaje? Los mayas desarrollaron sistemas de cálculo matemático y de lecto-escritura de gran elaboración y eficacia, destacaron por su arquitectura perfeccionista y establecieron una estructura social y política en la que convivía el socialismo con el sistema de castas. Formaron una civilización cuyos conocimientos y avances científicos solo pueden ser comparables a los de la Grecia clásica o a los del Egipto de los faraones. Su arquitectura y su arte aún hoy resultan fascinantes: los mayas elevaron hacia el Sol que tanto veneraban sofisticadas construcciones de piedra y sacrificaron víctimas humanas en sus altares. Fue un pueblo dominado por guerreros y sacerdotes que combinó con sorprendente paridad el talento con la barbarie, la belleza con la fuerza, el arte con la sangre.
