How to spot unreliable resources on the ancient Maya

    Since the ancient Maya have been added to the Key Stage 2 national curriculum for History (non-European Study) in the UK, there’s been a ‘mushrooming’ of online resources covering the topic, most of which are downright awful!

    Being a Maya archaeologist I thought it would be extremely useful for teachers to know what they need to be looking out for to confirm a resource’s unreliability.

    The 10 tell-tale signs that expose unknowledgeable sources can be found on my blog here.

    Do spread the word to other teachers trying to plan this topic.

    This again is very useful. I really think your resources are under rated. I think I am on occasion guilty of the Maya Mayan issue when I talk.
