From the 3rd to the 13th centuries, while Europe was deep in the Dark Ages, the Maya of Central America were creating astonishing buildings and sculptures, and charting the movements of the stars. This magnificent volume pairs an absorbing, authoritative history of their rise and fall, political intrigues and armed conflicts, with stunning photos of their surviving legacy, including the magnificent temples at Uxmal, Tikal, Palenque and Chichén Itzá, where their final flowering was extinguished by the Toltecs.
