in the 3,000 years between 1500 B.C. and A.D. 1500, the Maya created one of the most distinctive and accomplished civilizations in the Americas. Among the best known of the ancient Maya capitals was Lakamhá—better known by its Spanish name, Palenque—which foremost Maya experts George and David Stuart describe as being perhaps “the greatest archaeological discovery in the Americas.” This dynamic father-son team, having completed two decades of work at the site and currently distilling their findings into an upcoming illustrated book, will tell the compelling story of Palenque—its rulers, unique social structure, worldviews, and enduring architecture—and offer their keen insights into the Classic Maya culture.
