The Maya Conspiracy - With the Ancient Maya History team

In this episode, I will examine different Maya conspiracies found in Ancient Alien mythology with the help of Dimitris and Marie, the brains behind the Ancient Maya History Instagram account. Is there any truth to Palenque being depicted flying a spaceship? Are blood rituals a misunderstanding of how the alien communicates with humans? Is the Olmec evidence of alien travelers in Mesoamerica? As you might suspect, the answer is no, but tune in to hear the real history behind these claims.
