One of the world’s greatest and most powerful civilizations, the Maya experienced constant conflict in a landscape divided among numerous kingdoms. Intense rivalries, rapacious conquerors, and repeated dynastic defeat and breakdown are common themes in many tales of this mighty civilization. The ancient Maya remain one of the most vibrant areas of study in world archaeology. Fresh discoveries in the field, together with the ongoing process of hieroglyphic decipherment, mean that information is constantly coming to light. This new version of the only comprehensive, kingdom-by-kingdom history of the ancient Maya brings the story fully up to date with previously unknown rulers and new glyphic readings, as well as additional information on diplomacy and warfare. 366 illustrations, 86 in color     Download (37MB) The Maya (9th Edition) (ancient Peoples & Places) Maya Civilization (World History) Chronicle of the Queens of Egypt World Monarchies And Dynasties Beyond Collapse: Archaeological Perspectives on Resilience, Revitalization, and Transformation in Complex Societies Load more posts
