“What the Ancients Did For Us” Aztec, Maya, Inca

Wonderful documentary series about certain aspects of Aztec, Maya and Inca civilizations. I liked this one because it is viewed from how various places look today without having people dress up to look like Aztecs or Mayans.  This “What the Ancients Did For Us” series has four parts at about 15 minutes each.  Part I — some history about Maya and the Aztec culture touching on their farming methods on the water, and their calendar year.  Part II — some of the products that are used to this day that come from this part of the world, like rubber and medicinal plants from the jungle.  Part III — some Inca history and culture and some of their contributions such as gold and stone carving.  Part IV — contributions of the Inca such as their amazing suspension bridges as well as their system for counting.
