A new series with nice surprises. Very useful for those researchers interested in details of one of the famous PreClassic San Bartolo murals. The second article deals with strontium isotope composition analysis of human remains in Punta de Chimino, Guatemala. Hunting shrines around Guatemala's Lake Atitlan is a good ethnological contribution. The dawn of archaeological research at Plan de Ayutla, Chiapas, give us interesting settlement and architectonic findings. The fifth article about Piedras Negras, Guatemala, painted lithic artifacts will move researchers to pay more attention to their artifacts. Finally, a well documented text referring to offering bowls from today's and yesterday's Mesoamerica.

This is a great series for readers who have a deep interest in Maya archaeology. You don't have to be an expert to enjoy this first book, but it is geared toward readers who have more than a passing interest in the subject. The photos are beautifully reproduced, particularly the details of recently-discovered paintings studied with new methodology; this article is strictly photos without text. Other articles/reports are a probably too specialized for readers with less intensive interest in the subject as they deal with interpreting iconography and trophy (animal bones) deposits. An article on a very recently discovered/studied site is excellent.

This first volume is about 100 pages. Volume 2, which will be released in May of 2013, is nearly 150. They can be a bit pricey for books that are smaller than coffee table size (but larger than regular hardcover book size) and of so few pages. The price, however, is about $15 at the Mesoamerican Press web site.

Fascinating for readers with an intense interest in the subject, but a bit much, both technically and price-wise, for readers with a passing interest.

Excellently written and beautifully illustrated and edited. San Bartolo gets thorough attention here. I was especially pleased to see the coverage of Plan de Ayutla, a lesser known site near Bonampak. I had the pleasure of traveling on David Stuart's Maya Field Workshop last December. In addition to Palenque, Yaxchilan and Bonampak, we were able to visit to Plan de Ayutla which has some unique architecture and happily is covered in Maya Archaeology 1. On a side note, I just received my Maya Archeology 2 book which is equally awesome.

These are more scholarly books on the Maya, zeroing in on particular places or themes in Mayan art and archaeology. If you are familiar with archaeological terminology, these are very good, insightful studies of Mayan sites in MesoAmerica.

Images are 5 star! Sadly I was confused and thought this would have some copy on San Bartolo, it does not. This is a book of only images of San Bartolo. [ and other sites]
