A visit to the resurrected ruins of Copan in the Central American rainforest, a once majestic jewel of Mayan civilisation that was inexplicably abandoned 1,000 years ago. The documentary recalls archaeologist Bill Fash's 1999 excavation of the burial site of the legendary ancestral king and original founder of Copan's dynasty.
