In this episode, students explore Palenque, Mexico and the Mayan site of Copán in Honduras. There were a number of ancient city-states in the Maya region; however, Palenque was the most prosperous. A pyramid staircase engraved with countless cuneiform characters, the site of a ball court, and plazas surrounded by magnificent buildings are some of the defining features of Copán. The ruined Mayan city of Copán in western Honduras started to gain power after the city of Palenque’s Golden Age. Part of the “World Heritage” series.
