Mayan Panels – level 2

01-08-2022 15:00

Experts in Guatemala found three ancient Mayan panels. They are between 1,300 and 1,400 years old. The script on them is well-preserved.

They are extremely important to the archeologists because they give them important information. The script tells us how a Mayan man became king.

This is the most important discovery since the Mayan calendar.

The calendar ended in 2012, and many people thought that the world was going to end. Luckily for all of us, that did not happen.

Difficult words: ancient (very old), script (text), archeologist (an expert who studies human history).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
