CATHERWOOD,TATIANA PROSKOURIAKOFF,STEPHENS,TRAVELS IN THE YUCATAN,NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS INDEX...DZIBELCHALTUN,RIO BEC,CHICHEN ITZA,copan,DOS PILAS,CHAC MUL,IXCEL,LABNA,MERIDA,TULUM,COZUMEL,the maya developed from roots in the culture of the olmec,,they have numeric written dates of 3 and a half million years...they had the concept of zero...they had a written and a ritual language...the priestly language was sometimes encoded to be read forwards or backwards...the maya were war-like contray to original assessments...blood and human sacrifces were practiced...drugs were sometimes ingested by supository to avoid harmful effects to the liver,spline and kidneysas well as the heart....ritual combat between champions sometimes decide conflict between groups,city states or tribes...the lacondon,the quiche,the yucatecas,were some of the allied maya groups who composed the total grouping...great spiral canneled plots createed artificial eco-systems in a symbiosis of lily ponds,crabs,crayfish,fisheries,coffe plants,cacao plants,yams,maise,corn,beans and squashwith nitrogen fixing plants,insectivorous fish and birdssilt producing deciduous trees,flood management,irrigation and natural fertilization by animal excrement.food animals could also be readily captured in the spiral acreages of these plantation settings.there are 50 unexplored mayan city state capital complexes that have never been archaeologically excavated,seen and freed from their smothering jungle covering..they maya built great raised platforms and road systems and kept them free of plant growth by repeated maintenance between cities..the maya were aware of many planetary transits,orbits and ascendancies as well as the solsitises,moons nodes and suns seasonal retrograde movements...they were agronomists,astronomers,masters of the jungle,they traded through the pochtecas all along the coasts of the central american,north american and near south american areas..they were master temple builders and city planners...their ceremonial flint staffheads with branches,blades and silhouetted faces can not be duplicated by any science known to human kind today..they made handpainted codices only a few of which survived burning by overzealous christian spanish priests;the codex borgia,the codex nuttal,the codex venizziano and a paltrey few others!!tatiana proskouiakoof the russian archaeologist has spent decades trying ,with much success to translate the mayan language from existing codesis and stone stele,and temple inscriptions...the university of texas at austin has a very dedicated group working on the maya hieroglyphics also. and they have recently been involved in digs in the yucatan and elsewhere or cutting edge explorations into the mysterious and enshrounded lineages of kings,treaties and alliances of city states,bloodlines of ruling regional families and such!!the slash-and-burn agriculture of small scale farming done by indigenous myan people today should not be confused with the highly organized and symbiotic artificial ecosystems of the ancient maya and their ability to support great populations and large urban complexes with many castes and levels of infrastructurethat could never be supported by this primitive means!!!their pottery was superbly decorated with faux motifs,inscription,poetry and animated characters both human,gods and anthropomorphic animals,the potery assumed many and varied specialized forms.many ceremonial effigies were placed in enterments and in funerary necropolises with very subtle and delicate modeling and glazes!!their fabric weaving then as now is very intriguing and envolved,many patterns indicate tribal or regional clothing designations worn by an entire tirbe or regional center to identify individuals!!maya lands comprised the mexican states of chiapas,yucatanas well as modern guatemala,belize and honduras and stretched out toward the western sea to the territories associated with the monte alban culture and the olmecs of an earlier time toward the pacific ocean!!you'll find that many older issues that national geographic covered and financed actual digs and excavations throughout it's marvelous existence(1900's though 1990's..see the indexes for related topics and city sites covered by specific issuses...you'll find this a wellspring of information!!!
