Overview

From the deserts of the far north to the tropical Caribbean beaches, from untamed jungle to sophisticated cities, this jam-packed book steers visitors through the diverse regions and endless archaeological attractions of this multifaceted country. The book is divided into chapters that discuss the individual regions-Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatàn-and their archaeological sites. Among the featured sites are Templo Mayor, the ancient hub of the Aztec empire located in Mexico City, and the Mayan pyramids that comprise Coba, deep in the Yucatàn jungle. The insightful text and captions are accompanied by hundreds of photographs, drawings, and dozens of painstakingly rendered maps and floor plans. This volume is a source of valuable information for anyone intending to visit the main archaeological sites; it is also a fascinating introduction to the cultural and artistic universe of pre-Columbian Central America.
