The mystery of the sudden rise and equally sudden disappearance of the ancient Mayan civilization has become a bit clearer over time. Nova: Lost King of the Maya explores the work of archaeologists searching the ruins of the city of Copan in Honduras for hints from the past. Could the bones found therein be those of the legendary founder of the city and its ruling dynasty, Yax Kiuk Moi? The search is frustrated by our incomplete understanding of the complex Mayan hieroglyphic system, but high-tech tools and careful investigative work yield results to the patient scientists. Viewers will love the lush tropical rain forest, intricate carvings hidden deep underground, and the invitation to join the search for our shared past.
