Summary:
It has been fifteen years since a book was devoted to the new theories, paradigms, and investigations of archaeology and art history at Chichen Itza. The volume features five thematic foci: civic space, mythology through art, burials, trade, and landscapes.Due to the widespread awareness of this site, these themes appeal across the regional silos to reach all scholars of ancient America.
