Abstract:

This video story not only traces the Spanish conquest of the Aztecs and Maya, but also follows the journeys, in 1839, of New York explorer John L. Stephens to these strange and wonderful cities. Using computer graphic reconstruction, animated maps, classic art, reanactment and beautiful on-location cinematography, the viewer sees Teotihuacan, Cholula, Monte Alban, Chichen Itza, Tenochtitlian, Tikal, Copan, Uxmal, and Palenque as they might have looked 1000 years ago.
