Many ancient civilizations have influenced and inspired people in the 21st century. The Greeks and Romans continue to fascinate the West today. 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. In 2012 especially, there was a renewed focus on the Mayans, whose advanced calendar has led many to speculate the world would end on the same date the Mayan calendar ends, but if anything, the focus on the “doomsday” scenario overshadowed the Mayans’ true contribution to astronomy, language, sports, and art.

The Maya maintained power in the Yucatan for over a thousand years, and at the height of its “Classical era” (3rd-9th centuries A.D.), 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 AD. 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 AD.

As one of the Ancient Maya’s most important sites, construction at Tikal was impressive, and even though it was apparently conquered, the city’s records were unusually well preserved. This includes a list of the city’s dynastic rulers, as well as the tombs and monuments dedicated to them. Thanks to this preservation, Tikal offers researchers their best look at the Ancient Maya and has gone a long way toward helping scholars understand Mayan history.

Tikal: The History of the Ancient Maya’s Famous Capital covers the history of the city, as well as the speculation and debate surrounding it. Along with pictures and a bibliography, you will learn about Tikal like you never have before, in no time at all.

HASH(0x96fb33e4) von 5 Sternen Great Introduction to Ancient Mayan Civilization. 9. Mai 2014
Von Bill Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Is this a short summary? Yes, just 54 pages.

Is it lacked to the gills with information and analysis? Yes.

This is incredibly rich in data and hypothesis, plus it has several color photographs, so, if Charles Rivers Editors and Amazon want to call it a book, I won't quibble over such.

What I most appreciated was the discussion of what is thought happened and the logic used to backup the claims. Especially appreciated the candor over what is theorized and why.

It is readily apparent that there is a vast amount of information that has not yet been uncovered. I actually find comfort in knowing this, for, philosophically, I fear the day may come when we have no mysteries to solve.

I strongly urge historians, anthropologists and archaeologists to buy this book and read it. I am hungry to learn more about ancient America.

Tikal: The History of the Ancient Maya's Famous Caprital is outstanding, even if it is too brief.

HASH(0x96f018b8) von 5 Sternen Well -written review 22. März 2014

One of the most clearly written succinct discussions of Tikal I have read. Anyone visiting this incredible site would do well to read this first. It is brief but comprehensive and provides good references for further reading.
HASH(0x96f0184c) von 5 Sternen A perfect introduction to the Maya 23. April 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An excellent condensed but thorough account of Tikal from its earliest days when the huge nearby Maya city of El Mirador began to wane, and on through Tikal's conquest by Teotihuacano invaders from beyond the faraway Valley of Mexico - who exterminated the reigning Maya bloodline but preserved the city and began its own dynasty - and the later ups and downs of alliances, competition and war with newer Maya cities and Tikal's final abandonment. Having visited Tikal with the opportunity to explore most features between the tall Temple I down the Tozzer Causeway to Temple IV, I found Harasta's book fascinating for its details about things that our guide showed us without the explanations of discoveries yet to be made but are revealed in this history, which is surprisingly up to date. For anyone who finds the Maya interesting, I don't know of a better introduction. It isn't loaded with unfamiliar technical terms, but may whet your appetite for reading more advanced works such as those of Linda Schele and David Stuart, among others. Highly recommended.
HASH(0x96f018c4) von 5 Sternen Charles River Editors books are short but sweet 18. Juni 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Like all the Charles River Editors books, this was well written and appears to present currently comprehensive knowledge about the subject based on the voluminous bibliography. Significant alternative interpretations of evidence is presented. All these books are inexpensive but short, because little is known about the subject other than archaeological evidence or things like language science.
HASH(0x96f03684) von 5 Sternen Authoritative short introduction to Tikal 17. September 2015
Von Richard M. Sola - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent authoritative short summary. Gives plenty of information in compact format.

The authors definitely do not dumb down the subject. Less a guide book for Tikal than an introduction to its Mayan history. Plenty of photos!
