Quest for the Lost Maya, airing Wednesday, March 28 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011), explores archaeological evidence of a previously unknown Mayan society based in the Yucatan Peninsula of southern Mexico. The film surveys their dramatic rise to prominence in the “pre-classic era” (800-700 BC) of the Maya, as well as new evidence of the collapse of their civilization in the 800-900s AD.
