Have you ever wanted to know what it was like to live during the Mayan Empire – over 1500 years ago?
Then pick up this fabulous book!
You can learn all about this ancient culture – from their clothes to their foods to their habits and cities.
Each city had a temple for worship that attracted people to settle, creating centers of exchange and learning
The houses were made of mud, and families stuck together – living right next to each of each other.
And, what was crazy to me was all of the rules concerning life!
Employment was hereditary…If your parents were farmers, then you were destined to be a farmer.
One of my favorite things was learning about the beauty from back in the day!
Rich Mayans decorated their teeth with gemstones.
They also thought being cross-eyed was beautiful and would wear jewelry everywhere – ears, nose, lips and more! Wild!
All in all, this was a fun introduction to a new culture. There were SO many facts in here that I never heard of – which was really neat.
This is one of my favorites of Roman’s books!
