"By creating a game based around simulating an archaeological dig, adding in a mystery to solve about what happened to this town and then magically adding children who lived back in 79 A.D. as characters in the story, "Roman Town" has found a winning combination. This is educational software kids will want to play. As they play to unearth rare finds, their parents can celebrate too for finding this hidden treasure of uncommonly good learning software."
Students in fifth through ninth grades will enjoy the adventure of learning about archaeology and lost civilizations with Mayan Mysteries. They’ll unearth details of the Mayan empire as they learn geographic, scientific, and mathematical concepts. The game has a built-in Teacher Management System to track how each kid is doing.
