Although there is a lot of guess work made in this book it does clear up a lot of questions I had and gave me an insight in another world and culture.
The Maya's were highly advanced in their understanding of seasons, when to plant and harvest by the calendar. Although the Mayan Calendar was extremely complicated it was also the most accurate of it's time.
This book will leave you wanting to understand the Mayan's calendar more and more completely. A work sheet included in the book to help you understand this calendar would have added greatly to it's value for me.
