Interesting look into the anthropological understanding of the Maya peoples way back when scholarship was still pretty primitive. Take everything in here with a grain of salt.
Research leading to an outline of Mayan culture and its practices, family designs, styles, ceremonies, food culture etc. Dry tone, thankfully.
