This illustrated volume recounts Tikal's rise from prehistoric obscurity to unparalleled success at the height of Maya Civilization, as well as its spectacular collapse and abandonment. Through the many hieroglyphic inscriptions, grave gifts from tombs, and a rich architectural and artistic legacy, the book recreates the political and social life of the city and of the Maya in general.
