Hi,
Ive got a question I would like help with please. I watched a documentary earlier this year (can't remember which one though I'm sorry) it showed a painted Frieze / relief on an out building next to a Mayan Pyramid. The relief depicted invaders or raiders arriving by boat, the invaders had a single feather plume attached to the foreheads.

I seem to remember it was painted in red, and the curator of the site explained that he thought the pyramid would have been painted red also. From memory the pyramid looked like Tikal but I couldn't be sure I'm sorry.

Its not a lot to go on but could anyone help identify the pyramid and the relief I'm looking I would really appreciate it.

Do you know what channel it was on?  PBS? BBC?  Youtube?  What?
If it is PBS, I would look at Nova, although there might be other documentaries for Mayans on PBS as well.  You might look at Youtube, but you know, I don't think anyone is going to have easy answer leading straight to what you are looking for.  But I may be wrong.  I hope you can find what you are looking for, let us know if you find it.

Of course, you could try to directly contact an expert in the field.

Interesting related story but strange story.

The single feather clue is not sufficient to eliminate possible choices.

Thank you both for your help, I know it wasn't a lot to go on. I think I watched the programme half asleep one evening but I also remember thinking the description of the relief was also very interesting. I haven't found it yet but thank you for the web links and also the idea of contacting the local experts.

The Frieze had several sections to it, and the invaders were definitely arriving by boats. Ive gone back over some programmes I thought it was but no luck so far. I will contact some local Mayan experts and see if they can shed any light on it for me.

Thanks again for your help.
