This series creates portraits of life in ancient civilizations through the inhabitants. Each chapter focuses on a different part of society, such as peasants, scholars/scribes, priests, soldiers, rulers, and more. The ancient Maya were a group of American Indian peoples who lived in what today is Mexico and Central America.
