The Lost City - Discovery of the Mayans

The Mayan ruins of Tikal are hidden deep in the rainforest of Guatemala. From the air only a handful of temples and palaces peek through the canopy. The stone carvings are weather-beaten. Huge plazas are covered in moss and giant reservoirs are engulfed by jungle. Part 1 - Join me as I take your class, a group of archeologists, on a journey to unearth this ancient world. We discover ancient hieroglyphics, temples and colourful wall art that unearth the stories of this ancient civilization. But why did they crumble into dust? What is the truth behind the demise of this once great civilization? Part 2 - The class is split into small groups as programme makers for The Discovery Channel. There are news reports to make, history, astrology and a cookery programme to make and a soap opera about the Spanish conquistador who joined the Mayans. Lights, camera, action!

Aimed at: Years 7 to 8

The day will focus on the more prosaic aspects of trench life rather than any gratuitous role-play of the carnage of battle.
