"Helpfully introduced by its editors, The Carnegie Maya is a delightfully rewarding source of reference on the project. The whole book buzzes and tingles. John Weeks and Jane Hill have produced a monument to the project with a long life to come."
—Nicholas James, Cambridge Archaeological Journal
Praise for The Carnegie Maya II
"Wonderful volume. . . . John M. Weeks is to be applauded for taking on the task of editing this series. . . . These reports are once again truly current, and will spark interest in Mayapán, a site that is a true time-capsule of the Postclassic Maya because it was abandoned about a centure before the Spanish conquest."
—Susan Milbrath, Antiquity
"Thanks to Weeks, Masson, and the University Press of Colorado, Maya scholars now have an invaluable integrated resource. A vital resource for Maya specialists and Mesoamerican research libraries."
—C.C. Kolb, CHOICE
The third in a series of volumes intended to republish the primary data and interpretive studies produced by archaeologists and anthropologists in the Maya region under the umbrella of the Carnegie Institute of Washington's Division of Historical Research, The Carnegie Maya III makes available the series Notes on Middle American Archaeology and Ethnology.
The series began in 1940 as an outlet for information that may have been considered too unimportant, brief, or restricted to be submitted for formal publication. However, these notes are often of great interest to the specialists for whom they are designed and to whom their distribution is restricted. The majority of the essays—most of which are on the Maya—are on archaeological subjects, epigraphy, ethnohistory and ethnography, and linguistics. As few original copies of the Notes series are known to exist in U.S. and Canadian libraries, the book will make these essays easily accessible to students, academics, and researchers in the field.
Purchase of the print book comes with free individual access to the Adobe Digital Editions Carnegie Maya Series Ebook, which contains the complete set of The Carnegie Maya, The Carnegie Maya II, The Carnegie Maya III, and The Carnegie Maya IV, thus making hundreds of documents from the Carnegie Institution's Maya program available in one source.
