A Day with the Maya: Visiting Chichen Itza

Engage in an in-depth exploration of the glories and enigmas of ancient Maya civilization. Focus on four of the most splendid Maya archaeological sites: Copán (Honduras), Tikal (Guatemala), Palenque (Chiapas, Mexico), and Uxmal and Chichen Itza (Yucatán, Mexico). Exciting new excavations, along with recently deciphered Mayan glyph writing, have enriched our understanding of these sites and have imparted specific stories of individual Maya kings and queens. Also, explore contemporary Maya and cultural continuities, as seen in village craft traditions, religious practice, and literary expression.
