Ancient Civilizations of North America

Professor Edwin Barnhart

Sept 13th-Dec 6th

12:30-2:00 PM

 

The people who shaped these civilizations—the engineers, political leaders, mathematicians, and astronomers—were also considered to be of no value, labeled by the Europeans as primitive and backwards, often enslaved or murdered. And because the native peoples left no written language, the narrative continued to be shaped by the conquerors, passed down as truth from generation to generation.

Ancient Civilizations of North AmericaBut now—with the technological advances of modern archaeology and a new perspective on world history—we are finally able to piece together their compelling true stories. In 24 exciting lectures supported by explanatory maps, beautiful photographs and illustrations, and 3-D models that bring it all to life, Ancient Civilizations of North America will take you on an eye-opening journey through thousands of years of unique and fascinating ancient cultures. Professor Edwin Barnhart, director of the Maya Exploration Center, will show you a world you never knew existed.
