An Introduction to the Ancient Maya

In 1839, American author and explorer John Lloyd Stephens undertook an extensive expedition through the Maya region of Central America and Mexico. The resulting publication fascinated the American public and introduced many to the wonders of the ancient Maya civilization. Today, that fascination continues. In this presentation, Solomon will give an overview of Maya culture, including its art, architecture, calendar, and writing system and will show how recent archaeological discoveries are changing our view of this complex society.
