    GIST

    幾個世紀以來,瑪雅文明以其在數學、天文學和工程學方面的空前實力一直困擾著歷史學家。瑪雅人留下的一切似乎只是巨型金字塔的廢墟,但考古發掘的最新發現揭示了更多:在蒂卡爾周圍發現的危地馬拉叢林中失落的城堡、奇琴伊察的一個聖井,以及在特奧蒂瓦坎發現的地下網絡隧道。這些古人是如何建造這樣的建築?他們的目的是什麼?隨著光學雷達和地電阻探測成像技術的發展和應用,我們將嘗試回答這些宏偉建築物提出的問題。通過詳細的 CGI 重構,這個系列讓瑪雅人、他們的神明以及他們生活方式中久違的秘密揭盅。



    The Maya Civilization has baffled historians for centuries with its unprecedented prowess in Math, Astronomy, and Engineering. All that was left of the Maya seemed to only be the ruins of giant pyramids, but the most recent discoveries from archaeological excavations reveal much more: lost citadels in the Guatemalan jungle found around Tikal, a sacred cenote at Chichen Itza, and underground network of tunnels discovered at Teotihuacan. How were these ancient people able to build such structure, and what was their purpose? With the development and implication of new technologies (Lidar system and electrical resistivity tomography), we will try to answer the questions raised by these megastructures of stone. Through detailed CGI reconstitution, this series brings to life the Maya people, their gods, and the long lost secrets of their way of life.

    當你第一次親臨特奧蒂瓦坎,便會對它的規模和宏偉印象深刻。阿茲特克人在14世紀重新發現這座城市時,他們必然也有這種感覺。他們將這個城市命名為「特奧蒂瓦坎」,意思是諸神誕生之地。

    哪個古老文化能夠建造出如此龐大的歷史建築呢?尤其是高達65米的太陽金字塔——其高度僅次於吉薩金字塔。又有哪個文明建立了世界上第一個大都市?但關於特奧蒂瓦坎並沒有銘文或文字歷史留下,讓世人得知這座城市原來建造者的身份。

    多個世紀以來,專家一直思考這些問題。不過在2019年3月,負責挖掘羽蛇金字塔的墨西哥國家人類學和歷史研究所(INAH)考古學家塞爾吉奧.戈麥斯得出一項令人難以置信的發現:瑪雅人早在特奧蒂瓦坎的建造過程中已經出現,而且時間在在公元一世紀。到底這個古老的文明在建立前哥倫佈時期世界上最大的城市方面發揮著甚麼作用呢?

    When you first see Teotihuacan, its size and grandeur are immediately striking, an impression the Aztecs must have also had when they rediscovered the city in the 14th century. They baptized the city "Teotihuacan," the Birthplace of the Gods.

    Which ancient culture could have built these giant monuments, notably the 65-meter high Pyramid of the Sun, the second tallest in the world after the Great Pyramid of Giza? Which civilization was responsible for founding one of the world's very first metropolis? No inscriptions or written history remain that could identify the city's original builders.

    Experts have been pondering for centuries. But in March 2019, Sergio Gomez, an archeologist with Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH), who is leading excavations at the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent, made an incredible discovery: The Mayas were present during the construction of Teotihuacan as early as the first century A.D. What role did this ancient civilization play in erecting the world's biggest Pre-Columbian city?

    • 奇琴伊察 Chichen Itza

      奇琴伊察是瑪雅人統治過的中部美洲土地上最後一個偉大遺跡,不過沒有人知道這座城市的確切起源。可以肯定的是,在公元10世紀,它是該區最強大的城市。奇琴伊察雄霸當地的商業,並且吸引各地的人來朝聖。在發展時期,當地正建造的不朽建築,其風格恰巧與墨西哥高地的托爾特克文化極為相似。奇琴伊察是由這些外人打造嗎?近年的發現揭示赫赫有名的卡斯蒂略金字塔下方可能有第五個天坑,這些發現或許能進一步讓我們了解瑪雅人建造的最重要和標誌性城市的歷史。

      Chichen Itza is the last great vestige of Maya domination in Mesoamerica, yet no one knows the precise origins of the city. What is certain is that in the 10th century, it was the most powerful city in the region. It ruled local commerce and became an attractive place of pilgrimage. Its growth coincided with monumental construction, which is strikingly similar in style to the Toltec culture of the Mexican highlands. Did Chichen Itza fall into the hands of strangers? Recent discoveries have revealed a possible fifth Cenote beneath the famous El Castillo, findings that may shed additional light on the history of the most important and iconic city built by the Maya people.

      Who hasn’t dreamed of visiting Tikal, one of the most sumptuous Mayan city-states with its pyramid temples built in a matter of years and its legendary kings? Set deep in the jungle of Petén, Guatemala, Tikal dominated Mayan civilization for centuries. Over the course of fratricidal wars and alliances with the powerful Teotihuacan civilization, the city grew to a population of three or four million. Nevertheless, Tikal was abruptly abandoned in the 10th century. Today, new technology and recent discoveries shed light on its glory and the architectural accomplishments of the Maya. How could this people, with a mastery of neither iron nor pack animals, manage to erect such majestic monuments? How did the Mayans build such a city in a particularly hostile environment? And what caused their decline?

      An exploration of the mysterious world of Tikal, the most bewitching Mayan city, from its expansion until its downfall.
