We selectively watched this: well presented. The half hour segments make it easy to peel off what you need. I feel prepared for an upcoming visit to the Yucatan thanks to these videos. Tulum section was especially useful

It is an amazing history lecture, very clearly narrated and the most important thing is that it lets you travel back in time, how the different civilizations in Mesoamerica interacted, their social life, the architecture, their armies....if you are a history lover...this course is a must.

Fantastic - rather long - so expect to spend a lot of time - almost all sessions are worthwhile - and really like the sessions on columbus and other explorers - I think that was dvd 7. Definitely worthwhile.

Big chunk of info - I wonder if it tells the real truth too. In Thor Heyerdal's book "The Kon Tiki Expedition" it is said that the oral tradition of the Maya says that some time before redhead, white skinned Gods visited them, taught them and said they would come back later. Who were those "Gods?" Very probably, the Templars (many of them redheads), who had fleets of ships and they visited America long before Columbus. It was said on Red Ice (Swedish) talk radio that the Templars taught the Maya to build pyramids and mine gold and make religious objects from the metal. It was a cunning plan. 3-400 years later Columbus and the others, who belonged to the Order, went back there to "collect" the gold. After 1307 AD those Templars, after the Roman Church attacked them in France, fled to Scotland and became the pirates of the seas with their known symbol and flag of Skull and Crossbones - they collected wealth using all means, and today they are World Bankers. OK, for the rest, watch this video. The book of Christopher Knight "The Second Messiah" (available in library) is about the Templars.

Incredible detail on the history of Mesoamerica.
The content is super long, but well worth watching for anyone interested in the topic.
The speaker is excellent and talks from a wealth of personal experience. This guy knows what he is talking about. He also includes a lot of speculation along with the facts, but always expresses its merit and gives credit to others when due.
Topics include rulers, wars, lifestyle, calendars, art, science, farming, religion, languages, mythology, astronomy, towns, cities and constructions.
Amazing source for anyone with great interest. But probably awful for anyone who want a mild overview.
