The Lost Empire

Ensemble: Marching BandGrade: 3

The Mayans were one of the best-known of the classical civilizations of Mesoamerica. The Mayans developed astronomy, calendrical systems and hieroglyphic writing. The Mayans were noted as well for elaborate and highly decorated ceremonial architecture, including temple-pyramids, palaces and observatories, all built without metal tools. They were also skilled farmers, clearing large sections of tropical rain forest and, where groundwater was scarce, building sizable underground reservoirs for the storage of rainwater. This show depicts their life in 4 parts:
