How did they make serpents come alive? In this fascinating documentary you will enter their ancient world and find the answers. Learn how they counted twenties instead of tens and how this shaped their calendars. Decipher an alphabet more advanced than the one you use. And learn how the fate of the Maya may be your fate."
