Discovering Together

Rhine Mayan Morning

Today archaeologist, Afrikana Smith came to talk to Rhine about his work in the hot, dense jungles of the Central America.  

He was able to bring along some of the artefacts (usually located in museums) which included an array of weapons from knives to axes!  

We took part in a dramatisation of the Old World (Europe) and New World (Americas etc) clash, resulting in the take over by the Spanish.

We trained to be Maya warriors and hunters as well as playing a game of Ulama where in Mayan times the winning or losing team would be given to the Underworld!
