Abstract:

(Webmaster) Use this humanistic approach to archaeology and anthropology to make connections between past civilizations and modern societies, looking at how societies function and change. This series helps bring cultural ecology to light using physical evidence and scientific detective work. On-site filming at the spectacular Mayan center of Copǹ, Honduras, shows archaeologists reconstructing this ancient society. In addition, past and present cultures in Central and North America, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East are explored.

Scientists explain current theories about the formation of the earth's continents, oceans and climate, and examine the earth's relationship to the sun and other planets.
