This volume retraces the development and magnificent flowering of Mayan architecture over the period 300 BC - AD 1500. Lavishly illustrated in colour, it examines the construction form and function of such monuments as the pyramids at Tikal, the ball court at Chichen Itza and the hieroglyphic staircase at Copan. The buildings are all placed in their historical context and the book offers a stunningly visual introduction to Mayan culture and civilization.
