Lost City of the Maya Queens
Deep in Mexico’s jungle, huge pyramids rise from a limestone outcrop – this is Palenque: a striking ancient Maya city.
14 centuries ago, this was a thriving city, where practical innovations flourished side-by-side with blood sacrifices to patron gods.
Using immersive CGI, we dive into the heart of mysterious royal tombs and unearth the stories behind the bodies inside. And we reconstruct masterpieces of Maya engineering and design, that still impress today.
We decode complex Maya scripts that reveal the unique rulership of Palenque - paving new pathways in what’s traditionally a man’s world, this was a city of powerful Queens.
