Scribes, warriors, and kings : the city of Copán and the ancient Maya by William Leonard Fash( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Copan in modern Honduras was one of the great cities of the Classic Maya. Abandoned to the rainforest for nearly a thousand years, it was rediscovered in the early 1800s. Now, two centuries later, an international team of scholars is solving the puzzle of Copan and the ancient Maya. William Fash, himself one of the key contributors to the recent breakthroughs, describes how decipherment of the Maya inscriptions together with tomb finds have unlocked the secrets of Copan's history." "For this revised edition, Professor Fash shows how recent discoveries in the Acropolis, urban wards, and rural redoubts of the Copan kingdom reveal fascinating insights into the life and times of royalty, nobles, and commoners in this distinguished Maya city. The uncovering of the extraordinary tomb of the dynasty's founder provides illuminating information on his origins and accomplishments, while archaeological and hieroglyphic studies have demonstrated the importance of Tikal and the great metropolis of Teotihuacan in the founding and long-term legitimization of the Copan royal line. New excavations in the royal residential area give a blueprint for the layout and functioning of Maya palaces, as well as dramatic evidence for the violent and sudden end to dynastic rule. The site's spectacular architecture, sculpture, and jade artifacts are fully illustrated in photographs and drawings."--Jacket
Copán : the history of an ancient Maya kingdom( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume collects leading scholarship on one of the most important archaeological complexes in the ancient Maya world. The authors - internationally renowned experts who participated in the Copan Acropolis Archaeological Project - address enduring themes in Maya archaeology, such as symbolism and its use in elite legitimation strategies, demographics and ancient political economy, and the relationship between water management and social structure. In addition to site-specific breakthroughs involving dynastic sequences, epigraphy, and chronologies, these essays explore questions of broad interest to archaeologists and other anthropologists, including state formation, architecture and space, and the relationship between history and archaeology as well as among archaeology, epigraphy, and iconography. Synthesizing the new findings in the context of the long history of Maya archaeology, the volume takes stock of the field and suggests future directions for research."--Jacket
