Get ready to travel back in time and learn about the intriguing people and cultures that existed in what we now know as Mexico, Central and South America from the Maya who built imposing temples and pyramids, to the Inca, who crafted beautiful solid-gold objects and founded the incredible city of Machu Picchu high in the Andes mountains. With this book as your guide, you'll discover many fascinating facts about these mysterious peoples, including the food they ate, the sports they played, the buildings and art they created, and their religious beliefs (which often included human sacrifice!). You'll also uncover why these civilisations were almost entirely lost, and how we know about them today from the traces they left behind, and from their descendants who pass on knowledge of their ancient ancestors.
