Yesterday, archeologists announced the discovery of Mayan art and calculations on walls of a collapsed room. Because of the big “media splash” made by the announcement, and because of my own personal interest in the Maya (I’ve visited many Mayan ruins throughout Central America), I thought I’d make a quick related “The Best..” list.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About The Maya:
Mayan calendar: excavation reveals mural of ancient calculations – interactive comes from The Guardian.
Maya Rise and Fall is from National Geographic.
Mesoamerican Pyramids Photo Gallery is from The History Channel.
Here’s a History Channel video on Chichen Itza:
And, of course, I have to include resources on the supposed Mayan “end of the world” prediction:
2012 doomsday Mayan calendar interactive countdown clock is from The Sun Sentinel.
The World Won’t End in 2012 is a video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson:
Living Maya Time is from the Smithsonian.
Feedback is welcome.
