The Olmecs are one of those topics archaeological try to avoid at all costs. There are numerous theories surrounding the enigmatic civilization and their mysterious architectural features and statues. Mexico, Guetamala, Hondurus and Belize are just some of the places visited in search of the pre-Mayan megalithic civilization that flourished as far back as 7000BC. Mexico is famous for its Mayan and Aztec architecture but Hugh has discovered evidence of much earlier cultures, that were of megalithic origin and were the inspiration behind the Mayan emergence. The Mayans have been credited with introducing a sophisticated calendar, agricultural practices and incredible stonework, but it is now thought that the Olmec taught the Maya much of what they knew, with influences spreading into the world of the Zapotec, Toltec, Mixtec and Aztec peoples. We also explores the legend of Quetzalcoatl and gives an overview of the incredible Olmec civilization, who were thought to be African in origin and were part of a prehistoric cosmopolitan culture that travelled the world.
