Ancient Civilisations of the Americas

Do you know that tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkins, beans, peanuts, chocolate, sunflower and almost 60% of all the vegetables we eat came from the Americas? We will find out together after travelling with our imagination thousands of years back to the remote New World where the most fabulous civilisations developed and vanished.
We shall study the fabulous and mysterious cultures of the Americas, with an accent on advanced civilisations such as the Olmec, the Maya, and the Aztec. We will finish with the Inca Empire, the greatest political achievement of the Americas until it was interrupted by the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century.
