  • Audio Journeys are exploring the ancient ruins of a Mayan village in El Salvador. Twenty kilometers northwest of San Salvador the capital of El Salvador is the 650 year old village of Joya de Ceren, the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in El Salvador. What makes this site very unique is that the everyday life of the Mayans was preserved when around 600 A.D. a volcano erupted spewing volcanic ashes that covered the land, caused the common people to flee their homes. We tour the site with an El Salvador archaeology assistant and speak with Dr. Payson Sheets one of the archaeologist studying the site since its rediscover in 1976. Dr. Payson Sheets is primary archaeologist for the University of Colorado’s excavations at the site of Ceren in El Salvador. You can find out more about visiting El Salvador at www.ElSalvador.travel . You can purchase this half-hour Audio Journey on CD at www.AudioJourneys.org

  • New Lanark a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the location of this Travel Radio International’s Audio Journey. New Lanark is a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village nestled in the spectacular south Lanarkshire valley in southern Scotland, close to the Falls of Clyde and less than an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow.

    Over 200 years ago the impressive sandstone cotton mills of New Lanark were built by an enterprising Scot, David Dale, in a dramatic gorge in Southern Scotland, close to the famous Falls of Clyde. Raw cotton arrived from North America by ship. The cotton was spun in New Lanark using hydro-power. Soon the village became known all over the world under the enlightened management of Dale’s son-in-law, the social pioneer, Robert Owen.

    Today visitors can come for the day or stay in the historic hotel that was once a mill. Richard Evans is our guide. Photo is an historic print from the New Lanark Website.
