The Adventure Club".
The club was founded on 13 December 1938 by the polar researcher Peter Freuchen and eight men and two women spoke at the foundation: Dr. Aage Krarup Nielsen, engineer Ib M. Nyeboe, Mrs. Magdalene Freuchen, captain A.P. Botved, Antoine Moller, director Chr. Ditlev Reventlow, Estrid Bannister (later Estrid Good), Janus Sørensen and the foreign legionnaire Carl Mogensen. Among the former chairmen can be mentioned the military pilot Michael Hansen, who in 1934 achieved a great position in the adventurous air race from Mildenhall (England) to Melbourne (Australia). The club is based in a warehouse in Nyhavn in Copenhagen, and meets every Tuesday. Lectures and films from the travels of the members or invited guests are shown at the meetings. Around the round meeting table, in which the members' names are carved, stories are told and experiences are shared to strengthen the bonds of camaraderie.
The Mayan Indians" Awe-inspiring human sacrifices, advanced architecture and sustainable farming were what the Mayan Indians were known for in their heyday, and their culture has always been shrouded in mystery.
Who hasn't read exciting books about the Mayan culture where some of the pyramids, in volume, were bigger than the pyramids of Egypt.
Where this exciting Native American people had a 20 number system, and could calculate countless numbers. The ;aya Indians also had a writing system. There was just the problem that no one could decipher this writing. Today we can decipher at least 15 percent of the writing or the glyphs, if you like. Many came up with high-flying theories that could not stand the scientific test. And only now are we forming a picture of what could have happened.
It was a regular overpopulation that took the breath out of Mayan culture. The culture of the Mayan Indians was kingdoms, where the king was the supreme authority. In the center of the cities, the Mayan king built his palaces, administration buildings, and of course his pyramids. Especially the pyramid, where he himself was later to be buried after his death, much was made of it
The Mayans built the world's largest pyramids. Thousands of Mayan Temple Cities lie abandoned and forgotten in the jungles of Central America.
The 2013 expedition became the 2nd Danish expedition ever to find undiscovered Mayan temple cities
Blom came to Mexico in 1919, where he worked in the oil industry, but became interested in the Mayan ruins that he came across in the jungle during his work, which is why he got a job at Mexico's national museum, today the Museo Nacional de Historia, which financed some of his expeditions. He met Sylvanus G. Morley, who got him to Harvard University in Boston, USA, where he took a master's degree in archaeology.1. expedition was Frans Blom before the Second World War.
The first Danish archaeological expedition in 66 years was a great success. The Mayan population of 10-25 million disappeared approx. year 900 AD.

There are not many Danes who can compete with Indiana Jones. But Christian Lygum Christensen does what he can to surpass the adventure hero".
