About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. *Includes pictures. *Includes footnotes and a bibliography for further reading. Many ancient civilizations have influenced and inspired people in the 21st century, like the Greeks and the Romans, but of all the world s civilizations, none have intrigued people more than the Mayans, whose culture, astronomy, language, and mysterious disappearance all continue to captivate people. At the heart of the fascination is the most visited and the most spectacular of Late Classic Maya cities: Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza was inhabited for hundreds of years and was a very influential center in the later years of Maya civilization. At its height, Chichen Itza may have had over 30,000 inhabitants, and with a spectacular pyramid, enormous ball court, observatory and several temples, the builders of this city exceeded even those at Uxmal in developing the use of columns and exterior relief decoration. Of particular interest at Chichen Itza is the sacred cenote, a sinkhole was a focus for Maya rituals around water. Because adequate supplies of water, which rarely collected on the surface of the limestone based Yucatan, were essential for adequate agricultural production, the Maya here considered it of primary importance. Underwater archaeology carried out in the cenote at Chichen Itza revealed that offerings to the Maya rain deity Chaac (which may have included people) were tossed into the sinkhole. Although Chichen Itza was around for hundreds of years, it had a relatively short period of dominance in the region, lasting from about 800-950 A.D. Today, tourists are taken by guides to a building called the Nunnery for no good reason other than the small rooms reminded the Spaniards of a nunnery back home. Similarly the great pyramid at Chichen Itza is designated El Castillo ( The Castle ), which it almost certainly was not, while the observatory is called El Caracol ( The Snail ) for its spiral staircase. Of course, the actual names for these places were lost as the great Maya cities began to lose their populations, one by one. Chichen Itza was partially abandoned in 948, and the culture of the Maya survived in a disorganized way until it was revived at Mayapan. Mayapan emerged first as a minor settlement in the orbit of Chichen, but it slowly came to replace it after the larger city s trade connections with the Toltecs of Tula crumbled and it suffered a staggering defeat by Mayapan s armies. The building styles and art in their city show both admiring references to the great Chichen Itza as well as an attempt to position Mayapan as a more orthodox heir of Maya tradition. At the same time, they emulated many features and could not escape the tremendous influences - especially in religion - of Chichen. This is seen in the fact that many of the most important buildings in the new city appear to be small-scale reproductions of ones in Chichen. Due in part to the fact that it has long been overshadowed by Chichen Itza, a lot excavation and scholarly research on the site has only come about in recent decades, and even though there is still plenty of work to do, a lot of information about life in Mayapan has been unearthed. At its height, Mayapan may have boasted a population of over 15,000, and archaeologists have had their hands full trying to discover and restore the several thousand buildings both inside Mayapan s walls and outside them. Chichen Itza Mayapan: The Most Famous Mayan Capitals of the Postclassic Period comprehensively covers the history of the city, as well as the speculation surrounding the purpose of Chichen Itza and the debate over the buildings. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about the Maya s most famous cities like you never have before, in no time at all. Seller Inventory # APC9781978292468

Underwater archaeology carried out in the cenote at Chichen Itza revealed that offerings to the Maya rain deity Chaac (which may have included people) were tossed into the sinkhole. Early Mayapan was closely connected to the overshadowing power of the region at the time: the mighty trading city of Chichen Itza. Mayapan emerged first as a minor settlement in the orbit of Chichen, but it slowly came to replace it after the larger city s trade connections with the Toltecs of Tula crumbled and it suffered a staggering defeat by Mayapan s armies. The building styles and art in their city show both admiring references to the great Chichen Itza as well as an attempt to position Mayapan as a more orthodox heir of Maya tradition.

This is seen in the fact that many of the most important buildings in the new city appear to be small-scale reproductions of ones in Chichen. The Maya maintained power in the Yucatan for over a thousand years, and at the height of its Classical era (3rd-9th centuries CE), the city of Tikal was one of the power centers of the empire. Archaeologists believe Tikal had been built as early as the 5th or 4th century BC, and eventually it became a political, economic and military capital that was an important part of a far-flung network across Mesoamerica, despite the fact it was seemingly conquered by Teotihuacan in the 4th century CE. It seems the foreign rulers came to assimilate Mayan culture, thus ensuring Tikal would continue to be a power base, and as a result, the city would not be abandoned until about the 10th century CE. During the Maya s Classical era, the city of Uxmal was one of its most noteworthy places. While it was not as powerful as cities like Tikal, Uxmal was apparently at the forefront of Mayan culture, particularly when it came to architecture. However, while Uxmal used high ground to display its prominence, and the ruins are still among the most popular places for tourists in the region, the site is still shrouded in mystery. Even as scholars continue to work on the site to further interpret it, it s still unclear when exactly Uxmal was founded, how many people called it home, and when it was abandoned, despite the existence of Mayan chronicles and oral legends. What is apparent, however, is the skills of Uxmal s artisans, whether through constructing structures like the five-level Pyramid of Magicians and the expansive Governor s Palace or adorning the structures with precisely detailed art and sculptures.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 34 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.1in.Includes pictures. Includes footnotes for further reading. Many ancient civilizations have influenced and inspired people in the 21st century, like the Greeks and the Romans, but of all the worlds civilizations, none have intrigued people more than the Mayans, whose culture, astronomy, language, and mysterious disappearance all continue to captivate people. At the heart of the fascination is Chichn Itz, the most visited Mayan site, but Chichn Itzs prominence lasted for less than 200 years and was eventually succeeded by Mayapn, which lasted as the capital of the Maya for nearly 225 years until the middle of the 15th century. The Mayans are still remembered and celebrated for their culture and their contributions to astronomy, language, and sports, and many of their advancements came with Mayapn as their capital. Early Mayapn was closely connected to the overshadowing power of the region at the time: the mighty trading city of Chichn Itz. Mayapn emerged first as a minor settlement in the orbit of Chichn, but it slowly came to replace it after the larger citys trade connections with the Toltecs of Tula crumbled and it suffered a staggering defeat by Mayapns armies. The building styles and art in their city show both admiring references to the great Chichn Itz as well as an attempt to position Mayapn as a more orthodox heir of Maya tradition. At the same time, they emulated many features and could not escape the tremendous influences - especially in religion - of Chichn. This is seen in the fact that many of the most important buildings in the new city appear to be small-scale reproductions of ones in Chichn. Due in part to the fact that it has long been overshadowed by Chichn Itz, a lot excavation and scholarly research on the site has only come about in recent decades, and even though there is still plenty of work to do, a lot of information about life in Mayapn has been unearthed. At its height, Mayapn may have boasted a population of over 15, 000, and archaeologists have had their hands full trying to discover and restore the several thousand buildings both inside Mayapns walls and outside them as well. Mayapn: The History of the Mayan Capital covers the history of the city, as well as the speculation and debate over the citys buildings. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about the Mayan capital like you never have before, in no time at all. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 58 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.Includes pictures. Includes footnotes and a bibliography for further reading. Many ancient civilizations have influenced and inspired people in the 21st century, like the Greeks and the Romans, but of all the worlds civilizations, none have intrigued people more than the Mayans, whose culture, astronomy, language, and mysterious disappearance all continue to captivate people. At the heart of the fascination is the most visited and the most spectacular of Late Classic Maya cities: Chichn Itz. Chichn Itz was inhabited for hundreds of years and was a very influential center in the later years of Maya civilization. At its height, Chichn Itz may have had over 30, 000 inhabitants, and with a spectacular pyramid, enormous ball court, observatory and several temples, the builders of this city exceeded even those at Uxmal in developing the use of columns and exterior relief decoration. Of particular interest at Chichn Itz is the sacred cenote, a sinkhole was a focus for Maya rituals around water. Because adequate supplies of water, which rarely collected on the surface of the limestone based Yucatan, were essential for adequate agricultural production, the Maya here considered it of primary importance. Underwater archaeology carried out in the cenote at Chichn Itz revealed that offerings to the Maya rain deity Chaac (which may have included people) were tossed into the sinkhole. Although Chichn Itz was around for hundreds of years, it had a relatively short period of dominance in the region, lasting from about 800-950 A. D. Today, tourists are taken by guides to a building called the Nunnery for no good reason other than the small rooms reminded the Spaniards of a nunnery back home. Similarly the great pyramid at Chichn Itz is designated El Castillo (The Castle), which it almost certainly was not, while the observatory is called El Caracol (The Snail) for its spiral staircase. Of course, the actual names for these places were lost as the great Maya cities began to lose their populations, one by one. Chichn Itz was partially abandoned in 948, and the culture of the Maya survived in a disorganized way until it was revived at Mayapn. Mayapn emerged first as a minor settlement in the orbit of Chichn, but it slowly came to replace it after the larger citys trade connections with the Toltecs of Tula crumbled and it suffered a staggering defeat by Mayapns armies. The building styles and art in their city show both admiring references to the great Chichn Itz as well as an attempt to position Mayapn as a more orthodox heir of Maya tradition. At the same time, they emulated many features and could not escape the tremendous influences - especially in religion - of Chichn. This is seen in the fact that many of the most important buildings in the new city appear to be small-scale reproductions of ones in Chichn. Due in part to the fact that it has long been overshadowed by Chichn Itz, a lot excavation and scholarly research on the site has only come about in recent decades, and even though there is still plenty of work to do, a lot of information about life in Mayapn has been unearthed. At its height, Mayapn may have boasted a population of over 15, 000, and archaeologists have had their hands full trying to discover and restore the several thousand buildings both inside Mayapns walls and outside them. Chichn Itz and Mayapn: The Most Famous Mayan Capitals of the Postclassic Period comprehensively covers the history of the city, as well as the speculation surrounding the purpose of Chichn Itz and the debate over the buildings. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about the Mayas most famous cities like you never have before, in no time at all. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
