On March 13, 1697, Spanish troops from Yucatán attacked and occupied Nojpeten, the capital of the Maya people known as Itzas, the inhabitants of the last unconquered native New World kingdom. This political and ritual center--located on a small island in a lake in the tropical forests of northern Guatemala--was densely covered with temples, royal palaces, and thatched houses, and its capture represented a decisive moment in the final chapter of the Spanish conquest of the Mayas. The capture of Nojpeten climaxed more than two years of preparation by the Spaniards, after efforts by the military forces and Franciscan missionaries to negotiate a peaceful surrender with the Itzas had been rejected by the Itza ruling council and its ruler Ajaw Kan Ek’. The conquest, far from being final, initiated years of continued struggle between Yucatecan and Guatemalan Spaniards and native Maya groups for control over the surrounding forests. Despite protracted resistance from the native inhabitants, thousands of them were forced to move into mission towns, though in 1704 the Mayas staged an abortive and bloody rebellion that threatened to recapture Nojpeten from the Spaniards. The first complete account of the conquest of the Itzas to appear since 1701, this book details the layers of political intrigue and action that characterized every aspect of the conquest and its aftermath. The author critically reexamines the extensive documentation left by the Spaniards, presenting much new information on Maya political and social organization and Spanish military and diplomatic strategy. This is not only one of the most detailed studies of any Spanish conquest in the Americas but also one of the most comprehensive reconstructions of an independent Maya kingdom in the history of Maya studies. In presenting the story of the Itzas, the author also reveals much about neighboring lowland Maya groups with whom the Itzas interacted, often violently.

Long before European boats reached the shores of the Americas, sophisticated civilizations had already developed throughout the continents. The empire of the Maya, located in modern Mexico and Central America, influenced civilization there for centuries. The ancient Maya had fully developed the idea of the calendar, detailed a writing system, pioneered new ideas in agriculture, and built towering palaces and temples that still stand today. Empire of the Ancient Maya gives a brief summary of the history of the empire, placing it within the context of its time period and geographical location, and then explores the evolution of Maya civilization from its origin through the classic period to the Spanish conquest. Delving into daily life, the book includes Maya achievements in mathematics, astronomy, technology, political organization, commerce, architecture, and the arts.

When the Maya kings of Tikal dedicated their first carved monuments in the third century A.D., inaugurating the Classic period of Maya history that lasted for six centuries and saw the rise of such famous cities as Palenque, Copan and Yaxchilan, Maya civilization was already nearly a millennium old. Its first cities, such as Nakbe and El Mirador, had some of the largest temples ever raised in Prehispanic America, while others such as Cival showed even earlier evidence of complex rituals. The reality of this Preclassic Maya civilization has been documented by scholars over the past three decades: what had been seen as an age of simple village farming, belatedly responding to the stimulus of more advanced peoples in highland Mesoamerica, is now know to have been the period when the Maya made themselves into one of the New World's most innovative societies. This book discusses the most recent advances in our knowledge of the Preclassic Maya and the emergence of their rainforest civilization, with new data on settlement, political organization, architecture, iconography and epigraphy supporting a contemporary theoretical perspective that challenges prior assumptions.

According to the Maya Prophecies, the 5,000-year Fourth Age will come to it end in 2012. In a remarkable adventure which takes her all over Central South America and involves strange ceremonies at sacred pyramids, scaling an active volcano and chases with drug runners, Patricia Mercier attempts to discover whether 2012 will be the end of the world as know it or the dawning of a new golden age. When Patricia Mercier embarked on her personal quest to discover what the Maya people think may happen in 2012 she had no idea what to expect, and was surprised to be given a special mission; an old woman entrusted her with a life-size quartz crystal skull, telling her to carry it to the End of Time . To understand and prepare for her part in the rite, Patricia studied with Maya teachers and shamans; was blessed, tested, raised up and cast down. She was chased by drug-runners, saved by a mysterious guardian, inspired by visions and tested by Maya calendar-keepers. Her search led her to mystic ceremonies at Mayan pyramids; to the top of a lava-spewing volcano; into deep, dark underground passages; to the tombs of ancient kings - and to encounters with otherworldly beings. Patricia s experiences in the magical world of the Mayas, gives us a glimpse of what these ancient people really think and feel about life, how different their concept of time is and explains that the world has a choice between crisis and breakthrough in the build-up to 2012. The Maya End Times is a potent mix of serious investigation, travel adventure and inner experience compelling and unforgettable at the same time. We cannot afford to ignore the prophecies for the End Times, and we must rediscover the ancient wisdom that can help us change our world.
