The Mayan World Revealed 7

When David Stuart was 15 years old, he deciphered a piece of the Mayan code that unlocked the ancient culture’s system of hieroglyphics. That was just the beginning of his lifelong study of the Maya, a passion that lead him to the leadership of the Mesoamerica Center at the University of Texas at Austin. He joins us to talk about the people who once dominated parts of Mexico and Central America – the subject of the exhibit “Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed” at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
