   schema:reviewBody ""This volume collects leading scholarship on one of the most important archaeological complexes in the ancient Maya world. The authors - internationally renowned experts who participated in the Copan Acropolis Archaeological Project - address enduring themes in Maya archaeology, such as symbolism and its use in elite legitimation strategies, demographics and ancient political economy, and the relationship between water management and social structure. In addition to site-specific breakthroughs involving dynastic sequences, epigraphy, and chronologies, these essays explore questions of broad interest to archaeologists and other anthropologists, including state formation, architecture and space, and the relationship between history and archaeology as well as among archaeology, epigraphy, and iconography. Synthesizing the new findings in the context of the long history of Maya archaeology, the volume takes stock of the field and suggests future directions for research."--Jacket." ;
