Lost Cities of the Maya: Revealed

Archaeologists have made extraordinary discoveries in Guatemala that are set to re-write the history of one of the world’s most mysterious ancient civilisations, the Maya.

Lost Cities of the Maya: Revealed is a spectacular one hour co-production special by Wild Blue Media for Channel Four and follows intrepid on-the-ground archaeology revealing brand new finds, as well as exclusive research, using cutting edge technology, known as a LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to discover thousands of man-made structures including pyramids, royal tombs, towns and villages.

Archaeologists involved in the project have heralded the findings as the greatest advance in our understanding of the Maya in over a hundred years.
