The slideshow ‘tells the story’ of Tikal National Park, showing the archaeological site and surrounding forest habitats, plants and animals. Many of the photos focus on the archaeological site, where the intimacy of the place is quickly felt: some of the ruins remain buried in the jungle, while other monuments have been excavated and restored. It is a wonderful justaposition of wild nature and ancient civilization.
