Claude Baudez, William L. Fash, Jr., Berthold Riese, William T. Sanders, and David Webster contribute to this monograph, and using an integrated art historical and anthropological approach, consider the House of the Bacabs’ context as an elite Maya structure, its excavation and restoration, and its iconographic and epigraphic reconstruction and interpretation, to establish models for understanding Classic Maya social and political life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The [monograph’s] combination of traditional archaeological techniques and epigraphic-iconographic investigation represents the future of Maya studies. There is very little information in the literature that presents such a convincing argument concerning the function of architectural compounds.
