Overview

Who were the Maya?  What motivated them to create ethereal pyramids and intricate calendars?  Is December 21, 2012 a paradigm shift or simply resetting the clock?

Author Jeanine Kitchel brings her knowledge as a dedicated Mayaphile to light after a thorough investigation of both sides of the spectrum. Her research gives competing views from Maya scholars and the new age 2012ologists. Maya 2012 Revealed explains how we're even able to know that an "end" date was written in Maya glyphs due to the recent breakthrough in the Maya code. The book explains the Maya calendar system, details the Maya's fixation on the night sky and the Milky Way.  It touches on Maya writing and hieroglyphics, the abandonment  and collapse of the classic sites, and ends with the prophecy found at Tortuguero in Tabasco, Mexico.

Rather than textbook examples of what 2012 means, Kitchel shares her findings in the straightforward style her readers have come to love.
