Mystery of the Maya by Barrie Howells( Visual )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Europe suffered through the Dark Ages, the culture of the Maya of Central America was reaching its apex. Through dramatizations and recreations, this film illustrates scenes from traditional Maya life, the period of the Spanish invasion, the nineteenth-century explorers who first documented the existence of Maya cities, and the discovery of the tomb of seventh-century ruler King Pacal at Palenque. The film considers remarkable Maya achievements in art, architecture, the calendar and astronomical observations, and writing through the lens of their great city-temples of Chichén Itzá, Tulum, and Palenque. The work of various despoilers, explorers, and archeologists, from Franciscan bishop Diego de Landa and the lost Maya Codex, the Englishmen Frederick Catherwood and Alfred Maudslay in preserving images of carvings, which have been damaged or lost, to Giles Healey and the story of the spectacular Bonampak murals, is also detailed. This film invites the world to ponder the achievements of the Maya civilization and to speculate on the reasons for its demise

LeMystère des Mayas by Barrie Howells( Visual )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indiqué sur la jaquette : Du plus profond des jungles du Mexique et du Guatemala à l'assise calcaire de la presqu'île du Yucatan se dressent les fabuleux temples, pyramides et palais des Mayas. Alors que l'Europe était encore plongée à l'âge des ténèbres, ce peuple brillant pratiquait la cosmographie, avait inventé ce qui demeure encore aujourd'hui le seul système d'écriture indigène aux Amériques, avait accumulé une somme impressionnante de connaissances mathématiques et s'adonnait à la computation du temps. Sans bénéficier d'outils métalliques, de bêtes de somme ou même de la roue, les Mayas ont néanmoins érigé de vastes cités dont la perfection architecturale et la diversité sont saisissantes. Pendant plus d'un siècle, la plupart des gens ont refusé d'admettre que les jungles du Nouveau monde aient pu être le bassin d'une civilisation aussi brillante, jusqu'à ce qu'une poignée d'archéologues et d'explorateurs intrépides commencent à lever le voile sur ce fantastique mystère
