Deep in the dense rainforests of Central America lie the turbulent stories of the Maya monarchy, stories brought vividly to life in the Chronicle of the Maya Kings and Queens, which is newly available in paperback.

Describing many of their own discoveries, two of the world’s leading experts in Maya hieroglyphs take the reader into a once-hidden history, setting out the latest thinking on the nature of Maya divine kingship, statehood and political authority, and describing all the most recent readings and archaeological finds. Chronicle of the Maya Kings and Queens combines groundbreaking research with a highly readable history, offering the reader a front-row seat in one of the most exciting and fast-developing areas of world archaeology.
