Details

In 1839, American explorer and diplomat John Lloyd Stephens entered the jungles of southern Mexico where he saw the great ruins of abandoned cities filled with pyramids, palaces, and carved stones. Stephens had rediscovered the world of the ancient Maya, a civilization that had flourished within the foreboding jungles of Mesoamerica. This civilization built towering buildings, domesticated maize, studied the heavens to understand the regular movements of celestial bodies, and developed their own system of mathematics, but this advanced society mysterious declined nearly a thousand years before Stephens arrived. Customs, religious beliefs, human sacrifices, and other cultural traits are all explored in The Maya, a new title about the most advanced of the pre-Columbian American civilizations.
