Mayan and Aztec cultures come to life

As part of the History Club's activities at St George's Junior School, Chertsey Museum recently gave a very interesting lesson comparing Mayan and Aztec cultures. 

The pupils learnt how the original pyramids were very colourful and that the ancient Maya believed that certain colours were sacred and had significant spiritual meaning behind them. They believed that these specific sacred colours represented the “Four Cardinal Directions” (North, East, South and West) as well as representative to the various gods within their complex religious belief system.

The pupils worked together to make their own Mayan pyramid.
