The Lost Chronicles Of The Maya Kings by David Drew
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text brings to life the extraordinary civilization of the Maya. In it, the author answers questions about why they constructed their cities in the hostile setting of the jungle, the exact age of their ruins, the strange human images depicted in elaborate costume at so many of their sites and asks why, at the time of the Spanish conquest, all knowledge of the Maya had been lost. The book examines the Maya's history, art, architecture, political systems and religion and, finding that the Maya are not in fact a lost people due to their modern descendants in Mexico, considers the ways in which their society today illuminates that of their ancestors.
