The Mystery of the Maya (2000)
(Click on the Pictures)

I spent a number of weeks following archaeologists around the ancient Maya city of Palenque in the jungles of Chiapas, Mexico. Never before had I seen so many ruins in the half-light of the jungle. And the howler monkeys roared at us like lions. There is more mystery here than I had ever thought existed on the planet. Whole Maya cities have yet to be discovered in the jungles of Guatemala.
