Discovering man's past in the Americas by George E Stuart( Book )

17 editions published between 1969 and 1973 in English and held by 1,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discovering Man's· Past in the Americas chronicles human development in the Western Hemisphere from Ice Age wanderers to builders of mighty empires that astounded 16th-century Spanish conquistadors. The setting for this absorbing story reaches from Alaska to the tip of South America. With authors George and Gene Stuart and their four children you journey to sites where students patiently brush the dust of millenniums from the bones of mammoths at an ancient hunting camp; you stroll a deserted plaza in the moonlight, and hear echoes answer your call like voices from the past. You peer over the shoulders of archeologists as they glean information from vine-covered temples, dusty caves, burial mounds, and heaps of rubbish then turn to computers for help in filling in the details of a picture from the past. Dazzling works of art in gold, jade, mica, and stone tell of the abilities of ancient artists; the beauty of ritual objects and everyday goods reveals the patience and skill of the craftsmen who made them. Drawings, maps, and nearly 200 photographs take you to places as varied as the Grand Canyon and Aztec temples once reddened with the blood of human sacrifice -- Book jacket

Palenque : eternal city of the Maya by David Stuart( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sunday, 15 June 1952. Having spent four years clearing a secret passage inside Palenque's Temple of the Inscriptions, Mexican archaeologist Alberto Ruz gazed into a vaulted chamber. There, beneath a gigantic carved stone block, he would make a spectacular discovery: the intact burial of King Pakal, complete with jade jewelry and an exquisite burial mask." "Pakal was the most prominent among a long line of monarchs who held sway at Palenque from AD 300 to 800, deep in the mountains of southeastern Mexico. This 'queen of Maya cities' fell into ruin and was abandoned when Maya civilization suffered a mysterious collapse over a millennium ago." "Through the eyes of David Stuart and George Stuart, we travel with pioneer artists and archaeologists from the 18th century on as they rediscovered Palenque and attempted to document the city's graceful and ornate palaces, temples, bas-reliefs and hieroglyphic inscriptions." "Today Palenque, proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a place of new reverence and relevance for millions of modern Maya, New Age spiritualists, and all those fascinated by the history of the Maya. For them and for the host of visitors to Mexico, this is the perfect guide."--Jacket

The Chorti area was the locale of the Old Empire Maya civilization of which Copan was the culture center.
