The Inscriptions of Calakmul: Royal Marriage at a Maya City in Campeche, MexicoJoyce Marcus 1987
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
Calakmul is a large Maya site in the Yucatán Peninsula of southern Mexico, just north of Tikal and the Guatemala border. In the 1980s, Joyce Marcus sketched and photographed the inscriptions on the monuments of Calakmul, in an effort to understand the nature of Maya territorial organization through the hieroglyphic record. Through the inscriptions, she was able to identify a sequence of rulers and royal couples, and their association with temples and other architecture at the site. Foreword by William J. Folan.
