The Year of the Maya in Caracol

Earlier this year Channel Five’s William Neal and Alex Ellis headed west to the Caracol Mayan site to witness the splendor of the spring equinox of the astrological Mayan calendar, which ends in December 2012.  The event, the first of four coordinated by NICH and the B.T.B., was held at the base of Kaana.  Our team witnessed cultural presentations and traditional Mayan rituals at the crack of dawn involving Mayan shamas from Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. Archeologist Dr. Jaime Awe was on hand to share the significance and history of the events. Tonight we air part one of the two part series.
