This PBS NOVA Online feature is the companion Web site to "Lost King of the Maya," originally broadcast on February 13, 2001. The film follows the work of archeologists who are using new excavations and hieroglyphic translations to interpret the early history of Copán, a Classic Maya site in northern Honduras. Visitors can view video clips of Copán, read about the "discovery" of Copán by an American in 1839, view a map of the Maya world, learn about Maya hieroglyphs, and more. There is also a teacher's guide with ideas for viewing the program in the classroom and follow-up activities. This resource is referenced in the Xpeditions lesson titled "Two Ancient Cities." Less
