Abstract:

"Autobiographical account of the early days of modern Maya archaeology by the most influential Mayanist of the middle decades of the 20th century. A foreword by Norman Hammond highlights Thompson's immense contribution to Maya studies, but also points out that changes in the field since publication of the original edition in 1963 have resulted in the rejection of some of Thompson's ideas. This thoroughly readable account of Thompson's work during the 1920s-30s provides a fascinating glimpse of a critical formative period in Maya archaeology"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
