PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Religion and astronomy in the ancient Maya Civilization

A power point presentation on how the ancient Maya religious beliefs were expressed in their sciences and day to day living.

The Ancient Maya were a deeply religious people. Religion permeated every aspect of their culture from beauty practices to ball games. In fact religion was synonymous with pain and blood—the more the better. Even there ball games resulted in pain, blood, and death.
